I used to have a 'Patty's Plum' poppy in my garden, but it only lasted a couple of seasons, and even then, was a bit measly on the flowering front. I'd really expected it to be much more hardy. [ I've just seen a picture of a huge clump, which is the exact opposite of what I had].
Is this to be expected from this strain of the poppy family.....or was my soil too rich for it? What am I doing wrong?
I'd love to grow it again but not if it'll give me such little return!!
