Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't grow I love Poppies and this one caught my eye. Planted the seeds in the Spring and unfortunately nothing came up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still Going 4 plants have emerged and survived from the package of several hundred seeds. I'm hoping that 1 or 2 of them actually mature.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a shame I bought these and was so looking forward to them. The patch I planted them in is still bare, nothing happened

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't Grow I bought these last year and planted them this year and last year. Not one grew. Don't waste your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Venus is a show stopper I started the seeds under lights to get a head start on our short, cool summers. Venus is worth the extra effort. Most of the plants had flowers with so many petals that they looked like spheres. The flower colors ranged from white, to pink, to a deep maroon. A few plants sported single flowers and the coloring was quite exotic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big Disappointment I purchased these seeds last season for my border; was excited about the unique pink blooms! I planted the entire package but was very disappointed when only one plant came up, and it was an orange California Poppy! Very disappointing...
