Additional Information


~1,400 to 4,500 seeds/g.

Annual. Sensuous luxurious flowers, about 2½–3' tall. We offer two heirloom breadseed varieties especially suitable for baking. Poppies make wondrous cutflowers: choose buds that have straightened up but not quite opened. Immediately sear the cut stem with a flame and put in water. Poppies open after several hours—an austere bouquet in the evening can become a riot of colors the next morning.

Culture: Need light to germinate. Sow outside in spring after frost or sow in fall for early blooms the following summer. Thin to 9–12". Like full sun. Will self sow.


All flowers are open-pollinated except where noted.

Days in parentheses after a variety indicate days to first bloom.
