USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information

Usually considered a garden flower, this species is wild in its native land, and has been requested by many of our wild gardeners. Once established, it is a very permanent plant, living up to 100 years, and competing successfully in grasses and weeds. This makes it a wonderful early colormaker in meadows. Clumps are very tough and increase rapidly with more and more bloom. Yes, this is the classic perennial garden poppy, which has been hybridized into whites, salmons, pinks, and spectacular bicolors.

No, this is not the Opium poppy, Papaver somniferum, which is an annual. The Opium poppy is not only used in the manufacture of illegal drugs including heroin, but is also the one with seed that's used in baking.

Other poppies in our Seed Selections:
For the famous, smaller-flowered annual, Red Poppy, (also called Flanders Poppy, American Legion Poppy, Corn Poppy and Shirley Poppy), see Papaver rhoeas. It is always our best seller, and is the most popular wildflower in the world. We offer both the true red, and the multi-colored (red, pink, white) mix.
We also offer the Iceland Poppy (Papaver nudicaule) and California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica) not a true poppy, but a wildflower no wildgardener should be without.
