This little poppy, called Champagne Bubbles, is peeking out from behind annual Cosmos. This poppy has been quite a challenge for me to grow. It was purchased as one of many perennials for a new garden, and was first planted this year in a different location. I was excited when it formed many flower buds but then they began to drop off, 5 in all. I wondered if they were being chewed off. At the same time I had a new day lily which looked like it was not going to bloom so I dug up the poppy and the lily and exchanged places. And wouldn’t you know that the poppy is now blooming and growing new buds, and the day lily is forming a flower stalk.
