Where to Plant Your Poppy Plants
Poppies are self-seeding plants. However, they are not aggressive growers, so you can plant them without fear of them taking over the entire flower bed!
A relatively maintenance-free plant, the yellow poppy plant needs about an inch of water weekly but needs soil that drains well. Amend the soil with compost in spring, and tuck your poppies in for the winter with a protective layer of hardwood mulch.
The Tall, Elegant Poppy Plant
Poppy plants have a reputation for looking tall and leggy. These tall, golden flowers have four softly-rounded petals per flower; each petal has charming, ruffled edges. The blossoms form a shallow cup shape. When open, the flowers can be as large as three inches across.
They grow from a single, pleasing green stem with soft hairs that add an interesting textural element. The lobed leaves are silvery-green and form in opposing pairs on the stem.
The general look of the yellow poppy plant is tall, glamorous, and cheerful. It makes an impactful color statement.
