I think you will be very happy with the results. Below is a pic of 'Princess Victoria Louise' the season after transplant. She is reigning over the red cabbage.

You could dig your poppies or take root cuttings in late summer. Usually, I just dig and move but, in the future, to propagate this poppy, I'm going to try root cuttings. We'll see how that goes. LOL

The white one is beautiful!! Don't think I've ever seen a white one.
