The Q&A Archives: Annuals Or Perennials?

Question: I have some seed gotten thru trades. Can you tell me if they are annuals or perennials?
1-Papaver Somniforum pink double
2-Michalmas(sp?) Daisy Aster

When referring to poppies(papavers) they seem to be called orientals or somniforums. Does that mean one is annual and the other perennial? Thanks a lot. Jack

Answer: The Papavar orientalis is a perennial, the one you have is grown as an annual. The Michaelmas Daisy is a perennial.
