Are you talking about a poppy after it has already flowered? If you are, the top is full of seed. Make sure the plant has dried sufficiently and save the seed. Poppies seed readily if you throw them on the ground or let them drop naturally. I planted one poppy last year and had several come up.

I cannot get my poppies to bloom, since we moved and I left behind my beautiful orange oriental poppies. I have since planted 2, one has only 1 small leaf and the other has several tiny leaves. What is missing?

We love our California poppies. Great Granddaughter was delighted that the seeds she planted came up. And was such a big surprise for her on Memorial day when they came for a BBQ. We went out and planted her pumpkins before they left. She can't wait for Halloween this year.
