PAPAVER SOMNIFERUM 'RYE BEANER'
The colour of the large single flowers does indeed resemble a diluted glass of the famous blackcurrant drink. Every flower has a black centre to guide the bees and butterflies to the nectar!
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
Common name:Opium poppy
