Additional Information

Photos taken during photography classes at Longwood may not be sold for commercial uses.

Due to the unique qualities and requirements of this plant, the on-site photography session may be rescheduled to catch the blue-poppies at their peak bloom. As we monitor the blue- poppies, if the photography session needs to be rescheduled, class participants will be notified of the revised date in advance.
