        I have these Asa border for one if my beds. While they are not as prolific or as long blooming as some others, they are reliable in my climate (Pacific NW).

        I did not get a bloom from this poppy. I don't know why? Of all the plants I bought the poppy's were the most delicate. I love them and perhaps they would grow better somewhere more kind in climate.

        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).
