A lovely plant from North America, with large white crepe-paper flowers from July to September. The flowers resemble large poppies. Plants have attractive grey-green leaves and grow up to 1.5m in height. These are great border plants and look lovely against a sheltered sunny wall. They grow well in warmer UK and Mediterranean gardens.
Tree Poppies grow best in sunny well-drained soils, with some protection against cold winds. They grow in coastal gardens. In colder gardens the plants need mulching in winter to protect the roots. The plants die back in winter and re-grow in spring.
Pack of 50 seeds. Sowing is erratic and tricky and takes time, so sow more than you need and donít give up too quickly. Sow anytime including a month in a fridge or sow in autumn for germination in the spring. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
