A rare and extremely beautiful poppy with large, floppy, orange-apricot flowers on branching hairy stems. The attractive hairy leaves add to the appeal of this choice and rarely offered plant.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
Common name:Papaver pilosum
