I have a bed of iceland poppies in my front yard. Since they only bloom for a few weeks, I'd like to add some complementary annuals that would bloom throughout the summer. Do you have any suggestions?

It's a great idea to add some long-flowering annuals to perennial beds. There are many, many annuals to choose from. Summer-flowering annuals include zinnia, cosmos, coreopsis, geraniums, marigolds, and petunias. Snapdragons and pansies like the cool weather of spring and fall. Asters and chrysanthemums are classic fall flowers. Hope this helps!
