A more recent variety of annual Poppy, with big single flowers in attractive plum-purple colours. Plants grow to a tall 1-1.2m and flower in June to August. These are good border plants. The seed pods are ornamental in winter, and look good in dried flower arrangements. Plants self-seed in following years, but may not look the same if they have been pollinated from different varieties of poppies nearby.
Poppies grow best in full sun and can cope with all soils except water logging. They look good growing in groups.
Pack of approx 600 small seeds. Sow in autumn or spring directly in the ground. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
Parts of the plant are considered toxic.
