I have an area in the front garden where I'm multiplying the daffodils for spring blooms around the tree and shrubs.
I tried to get chocolate flower to establish in the area for summer blooms. However, despite claims that it would self seed easily even trying to gather the seeds and start them myself, it never spread past where I planted it. If fact, I think the lone chocolate flower plant gave up last summer in the heat. No sign of it yet.
I'm looking for something that will self seed easily for the area for the summer so these poppies sounded perfect and they're purple. The front garden has purple, yellow and white blooms.
I cleared the mulch in an area and tossed out some of the seeds using this screen to protect the area from neighborhood cats and dust bathing birds. Note the rocks to keep the screen from blowing away.
I see green sprouts.
I think I have poppy babies!
Bring on the purple poppies.
