A very unusual variety of annual poppy, grown for its attractive seed pod, which has lots of small pods on the base, and together resembles a mother hen and her chickens. The plants flower in the summer from June to August, in attractive shades of plume, and grow to a height of 60-80cm. After flowering, the seed pods form, first in green and then maturing to brown. These pods are great for flower arranging, either green or dried. Dried pods can be painted.
Poppies grow best in full sun and can cope with all soils except water logging.
Pack of approx 500. Sow in autumn or spring directly in the ground or in early spring in pots. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
