Answer: Oriental poppies (Papaver orientale) are short-lived perennials that self-sow freely. The plants that grow from seed might not resemble the parent plant in flower color. Provide full sunshine, average garden soil, and water sparingly during the summer months. You can transplant your little seedlings by carefully digging them up and transporting them to another garden site now, before the roots become too established. Water well after moving the seedlings. Poppies don't like to be disturbed, so expect some of the seedlings to pout after being moved. Hope they all make it!
