Poppies could take cold better than heat (or at least humidity) We grow
poppies (not the blue) as winter annuals here.

Poppies (Papaver) are not very similar to Meconopsis in their
growing likes and dislikes. Bad Idea (tm) to call Meconopsis
'Blue Poppies'; the curse of the 'common name'.
By all means try, say, Meconopsis grandis, or M. horridula,
and see if you can get them to persist, and report back how
it was managed; I'd love to know. They're monocarpic, btw.
