Hopefully I am not duplicating this thread ... (If so, delete this thread, Nicole ... please)

I have grown the NOID Pink Papaver somniferum for 3 years now from seeds. Each year I pull up the dead plants when they have expired. Well, I got a BIG surprise this year when I did the pulling ...

I got this HUGE tuber. Should I have left it in the ground? Would it have come back again next year ... bigger and bolder than before....

I was out in the garden because I could see this white beacon and had to check it out.
Its the third bloom on Royal Wedding since September 15th.
This is the second time the plant has put out this year.

I agree Very pretty Jo Ann!

I had a nice surprise this past weekend. I had a couple of late bloomers. I have no idea of the cultivar, but what a wonderful surprise. Usually the poppies are all done here by the end of April. Can't believe I am getting blooms in May! Yay! No more left though. Now it's just waiting to collect seeds from the flower head. :-) Thumb of 2011-05-31/beckygardener/bb669c

It appears so. Has the same leaves as the Papaver somniferum. It is dying now that it has bloomed. I just hope I get seeds from it! Very numerous and tight petals. I got the seeds from Karla. Thank you, Karla! I tip my hat to you.

Thanks, Jo Ann. I wonder if Karla might know what cultivar it is. She sent me a little bit of some different seeds she had. I have been totally knocked over by all these different blooms this year! I had only been growing PS for the past few years. These new beauties have really opened my eyes to the many different cultivars of poppies. Makes me adore them even more! I am sure hoping I get seeds from this newest bloomer. Looks like a carnation to me! Lovey dubby

Thats what it is I knew it was familier.
When I want to be absolutly sure of getting seeds.I wait until the plant begins to wilt and die,lower leaves are brown but pod is still a bit green.
I pull the plant and hang it upside down in a bag inthe garage .Ina August pods and seeds ahould be mature and seeds afllen out into the bottom of the bag. I Label the bag with any discriptive note or cult .name if I have it.

Jo Ann - I usually just wait until they ripen on the plant and then shake them into a small paper envelope. But you are right, dumping them upside down in a paper bag would be one way to ensure that the wind or something else doesn't scatter the seeds before I can collect them! What would you call those? Pink peony poppies?

becky gardner.
Both ways work. I remove the dead plant when it interferes with an upcomming bloom.

Senior moments mean I get things incomplete and sometimes backwards. Good thing gardening isnt an exact science.

Its too dark today to check if more opened. Give me a couple more hours. I love to see them in bunches. This is from last year.
