      When guests to my yard see the poppies, they stop in their tracks and ask "what is that plant"? They are dramatic color, form and beauty.

        I've been trying to get some poppies going for two years and last year I ordered these plants from High Country. The first ones planted died back and never came up but they replaced them with new plants. The replacements have now bloomed and are very huge vibrant red flowers. They look like they will produce a lot of seed pods and spread out. I kept a wire fence around them to keep animals off of them. Poppies are tricky to grow but these are fantastic.

        Surprised it made it thru the harsh winter and a long one at that. It has snowed in May! Doing great in both locations I planted them. Soil is clay, but amended with potting soil and plant is doing well and has big blooms getting ready to open. How does my garden grow?...with purrrrfect plants from High Country Gardens. Thank you very much. So easy even a novice can grow them!

          I ordered two plants last summer, and they arrived in good order for autumn planting.

          Both plants are doing quite well now, and both have numerous flower buds. One bud has flowered already and the color is a stunningly gorgeous red with black undertones.

              Plants never grew. They were planted per enclosed instructions. They were given the appropriate amount of water and sunlight. Still did not grow or come close to flower. I do not recommend.

              Q & A

              USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

              To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

              • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
              • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

              Find Your Planting Zone:
