Hungarian Blue Bread Seed Poppy

I have never grown Poppies, and saw this beautiful flower on the Seeds of Change website and wanted to give it a try. They are grown from seed and the only attention they needed was a good garden soil and some watering.  And judging from the growth of almost 12" in the past week, they needed a good amount of heat and sunshine.

Yesterday the first arrived and then was gone by evening - this morning another bloomed and a few more look like they will be ready soon.  Such an amazing and unusual looking plant and flower. Bright purple flower perfect to go with the golds, reds and yellows of the Nasturtium, Marigolds and clover.
