I purchased a potted Poppy Anemone at the garden shop yesterday. It was in bloom. I thought it was a little early for poppies to be blooming in the warmer part of zone 7. The lady indicated, well, yes it is early, but...
So, I guess it was green house grown.
I am wondering if I plant it outside and we get frost, will it be killed? I have it on the porch, so any frost we may get would not kill it. I doubt if we will have anymore hard freezes, but the frost free date is around May 1st.
When the danger of frost is over and I plant it outside, will it come back next year? OR Did I buy a green house forced plant and about the best I can get out of it is to enjoy it now on the porch and then discard it after it stops blooming? How long should it bloom>?
