Papaver A beautiful color selection with mostly pink on the outer two thirds of the petal edge with a slight purple blush in the middle and on the petal backs. Double, but not a full pompon; the fringes on the petal ends give it a spider-aster or cactus-dahlia look. The grower enthuses about how much he enjoys a field of these in full bloom. Reblooms after deadheading, though the blooms are smaller. 3'. ①

Annual. Sensuous luxurious flowers, about 2½–3' tall. 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. ~1,400 to 4,500 seeds/g.
All flowers are open-pollinated except where noted.
Days in parentheses after a variety indicate days to first bloom.
