Description

An heirloom variety poppy with deepest darkest burgundy eyes. The large seed heads are much desired by flower arrangers, and will make a statuesque statement in your garden long after the blooms are finished. This elegant addition to the cottage garden enjoys full sun and well drained soil and will bloom steadily through July and August if regularly deadheaded.

Sowing Advice

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.
