How to plant Shirley Poppy seeds

9 Shirley Poppies

Shirley Poppies are true harbingers of spring. Bloom is early when their bright, cheerful faces are most welcome - other annual plants are weeks away from flowering. Bloom season can be extended through summer when seed is sown successively. Sear fresh-cut stems with a match flame, to prepare Shirley poppies for your vase. Super-showy and easy to naturalize and grow, our gardens would not be complete without Shirley poppies. Plants reach 18 to 36 in. tall.
