    Do poppies like full sun or are they a shade type flower?

    I have them all over the garden tho they seem to flower better in full sun ( tho they don't last as long) the first 3 are papaver rhoeas Picotee mied they are gradually reverting to the usual red the last is a cheat as it is a perennial but it lights up the garden when spring starts. My seed catalogue came this morning1 I shall have to go thru it carefully for several hours in the sun this afternoon! Judi
