Question about oriental poppy
A couple of years ago, we bought a perennial poppy. I believe it was an oriental poppy. I planted it in our raised bed. It has green lush foliage every spring, till mid June, then it dies without flowering. It grows back in September. I wonder why it does that? Is the soil too rich, or do we have too much spring showers? Any insight would be appreciated. Also can I transplant it when it goes dormant to a different place, or would it die?
