Shirley Poppy 22 June 2010 Shirley Poppies
Shirley Poppy is the name given to an ornamental cultivar group derived from the European wild field poppy (Papaver rhoeas). Wikipedia. I have many poppies growing at random throughout the garden. They self seed and are a welcome sight during the late Spring and early Summer. Always a welcome addition in the garden.I dispense seeds amongst the tulip beds to hide the vegetation, which can get ragged in appearance. One plant if given sufficient room will produce about 100 flowers over the season. Neena is always sniffing for rabbits.
