Two years ago I dug up some poppies that were growing at my mothers. She had had the same type of poppies as long as I can remember. Well I got them home and didn't plant them right away and they died. So I dumped the pots at the edge of the woods. Last year I was surprised to see that there was a poppy plant there and when it bloomed like my mothers I was really surprised. Now this year there are several plants with several buds/blooms. My mother was at the house this weekend and loved them planted at the edge of the woods. A happy ending to the story.
