Papaver anomalum 'Album'

Hi, folks. Anyone have experience with this poppy? I got my seeds from GardensNorth, the instructors for which say "warm germinator" and "easy." Now, I've never seen an "easy" poppy, not when germinated under lights and then transplanted. But maybe someone has worked with this one.

TIA,
Gary

For me, it is just another poppy. I don't have a problem germinating or transplanting them. I don't agree on warm germination as I typically find germination better when temps are kept under 20C. That being said the poppy is one of the few plants I prefer to direct sow as I don't find much advantage starting early, especially since the blooms shatter so fast. I like to direct sow every few weeks to get max bloom time.

Good luck.
