Answer: There's nothing wrong with your poppy. When it flowers it sets seeds and then it dies down. It's perfectly natural and normal. Some kinds of poppies bloom early in the summer and others bloom all summer long. Yours is the type that flowers early and then rests until the next year. If it leaves an empty space in your garden you might want to plant something else near it that blooms for a longer period of time. Enjoy your poppy while it is blooming, but expect it to die down and rest after flowering is finished. Enjoy your garden!
