About Me Master Gardener
I ordered 3 poppies for my mother and was very excited to receive them as when I ordered most reviews were 5 stars. Upon arrival they were extremely dry and about 2 inches tall. Most of the leaves were dead. We were not sure if they would make it but planted anyway. 2 of the poppies died. I was very disappointed.

Ppapaver oientale Brillant Thriving in my Garden
from Pagosa Springs, CO. 7200 ft. elevation
Brilliant pouted in the shade for a year before I moved it to full sun. This spring it grew to 2 1/2 feet tall, full foliage and bloomed multiple lovely brilliant orange red blooms in June. It bloomed at the same time as my purple iris and made a striking contrast. Thank you High Country Garden. Your plants arrive packaged more carefully and healthier than any other online nursery I have ever used.
