Friday Favorite: Peony Poppies

July 12th, 2019

Once you grow poppies once in the garden they seem to spring up here and there around the garden. I haven’t seeded a poppy in 6 years and yet I have a mass of blooms each July. I’m especially fond of the peony types, they’re extravagant blooms are quite stunning.




This patch came up in the vegetable garden, they’ll be allowed to grow and bloom, then I’ll pull them and replace them with fall vegetables.

Do you have any beloved self seeders in your garden?

    I’m new to flower growing this year. I grew zinnias and cosmos in our unheated greenhouse. They’re gorgeous and easy to grow. Your post has inspired me to try poppies next year, especially the beautiful peony poppies. Thanks for the idea!
