PAPAVER SOMNIFERUM 'MIDNIGHT'
A bed of these unusually dark, almost black flowers, with an eye of distinctive white stamens makes a striking, mid-border clump.
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.
