they are very hardy. i here in austria the waldviertel, one of the
toughest regions at all, is famous for its poppy-production. zone 3 i
would guess - a windswept high plateau, 6 months of snow, cool summers
(ideal for hiking, if there wouldnt be the winds...). and since they
grow poppy in burma for commercial opium, it will grow all the way to
uone 10 i would guess.
