I grew this sweet pea from a seed, so I'm happy to see it finally bloom. I bought a bunch of seeds from a little store in town that sells all kinds of random things. Lots of the seed packets had an expiration date of 2003, so I risked them anyway and planted a bunch. About half of what I planted came up, unfortuantely none of the poppies made it. I think my favorite flowers are sweet peas, sunflowers, poppies, and hollyhocks, but I love all flowers.
