why did my poppy have buds which turned black and did not flower/

last year they were beautiful, lisa



If you're asking about Oriental Poppies, sometimes if it rains at the wrong time, the buds do this - mine did, too, but the later ones opened well and normally. I just sighed and cut the black ones off to the ground.

If it wasn't the rain, did you check for insect damage?
