Other info: In 2012 I ordered plug plants for the oriental poppy Brilliant. I managed to get a couple planted in the garden in the late fall of 2012. One plant died, one remained. First bloom was 2013, while the plant had struggled due to lack of care. 2014 the bloom was absolutely beautiful, and a garden standand out to a distance, being noticed by all who saw, even from the road 200' away. Oriental poppy plants can be very fussy about transplant. In February, 2015 I decided to order and sow from seeds to try to establish additional plants. Therefore, these plants are being offered for sale this year. It has seemed that the smaller seedlings are easier to transplant and are less fussy.

NOTE: The photo is actually of Beauty of Livermere, since I failed to take a photo of 'Brilliant' poppy in 2014. In my opinion, Beauty of Livermere is a deep dried blood red, while Brilliant is more of a bright fresh blood red.
