lovely colour combination. they look like they're made of silk!

Yes it starts out the most wonderful silky colour and then fades to a greyish lavender. But most of the time it looks good so worth keeping.

love poppies... I grow the annuals. really should look into these.

They need a fair amount of space, they can sprawl, even tho stems are stiff..I tend to put couple of wire half circles around mine
