How to grow Spanish Poppy: Germinate like Papaver somniferum, only this is a bit slower to germinate.  It likes chalky soil. This is perennial in warm areas (zones 6-8). It freely reseeds when happy and can produce so many seeds that it becomes weedy, so don't plant it in a rock garden, or you will never get rid of it. General growing info Top
