Looking to buy harvest moon oriental poppies and your article was very helpful. Question: i understand flowers die out in summer, but does rest of plant wither or stay full of green leaves? Also, do flowers bloom again in fall?

They grow and bloom in spring, then go dormant in the summer. All the foliage dies back. In the fall, when it cools off, fresh foliage begins to grow and holds through winter. In the spring it continues to grow and flower. It does not flower in the fall.
