Ice Cube Poppies (Growing Poppies in Warm-Spring Areas)

By Jai_Ganesha

Annual poppies, such as Shirley poppies and breadseed poppies, are fleeting and ephemeral bloomers. Compared to other annuals, the flowers last only a short while, but in that relatively short time period, their beauty can and will steal your heart forever. This article offers hope to those who live in areas with warm and humid springs (such as the American Southeast) and who want to grow annual poppy varieties, such as the Shirley poppy or breadseed poppy.

Thank you so much for the information. I have raised yellow poppies in zone 7B in GA. I guess ignorance is bliss. I thought they needed good fertilizer, water, and sunshine to grow. I did start them in a pot. It took about two years, but they finally bloomed. I had a large pot of them. I decided to plant them in my garden bed. That was the beginning of the end for them. They started declining and finally died.

I will try your strategy the next time I decide to grow some. I still have poppy seeds that I haven't used yet.

Kindest regards,
Linda
