    Gorgeous LuLu - is it a self seeder?

    Papaver somniferum.... opium poppy. Once you have them ,you will always have them. I gather seed to try and keep them where i want them.

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.

    Wow indeed.  They are standing so perfectly upright and straight as well.  Gorgeous.  How on earth do you achieve that?  I have to stake mine.

    Self seeded ones tend to be stronger growing .........but heavy rain can certainly knock the flowers aboutimage

    Mine have buds but not opened yet.

    As Kef says...........a real cracker..........congratsimage

    it sure is a cracker. 

    I broadcast some seeds along the edge of the polytunnel into the "scalping" and now have a fine show of seedlings coming up.

    Oh wow indeed Lulu, that is beautiful.  Want one! 

  • Don't know where it came from, didn't see any when we moved in last year but there seem to be other smaller ones about the place too. Lucky indeed!
