Oriental Poppies


Zone 46544 | Maurina Ruth Blalock added on October 10, 2017 | Answered

My poppy comes up every year with three or four leaves. Then the leaves start dying off one my one, but also has new leaves coming on. Eventually the plant just dies out and never blooms. I planted it four years ago and it only bloomed once. What is wrong with my poppy?
