The poppy plant leaves had just started out of the soil.  No flowers yet just the green leafy part.  We had a frost and the leafy part shriveled, browned up and appears to have died.  Does this mean the whole plant is lost?  Should I remove the browned leaves?  What should I do with the root part?

They are listed as hardy plants, so flowers and more leaves should come up, they like amended soil , good compost, plant about 1 ft apart and they do NOT do well in containers.

Thank you, made my day knowing all is not lost.  This poppy's color is my favorite and I would have been so disappointed to not have it any longer.  We will add soil to the area it grows in.  Thanks again.
