Poppy (Papaver nudicaule Fire Sunbright) 200 seeds (#2006)
About the product
Flowering in the first year from an early sowing, these vivacious, silky blooms can be treated as annuals.
Superb in patio containers and mixed borders
Drought tolerant once established. Excellent for cutting, if picked just as the buds begin to open.
Grow corn poppy in full sun and fertile soil with average moisture and good drainage. This is a true wildflower, so plant it as such by sprinkling its seeds in worked up ground. There is no need to cover the small, black seeds. This poppy does not fare well in regions with hot, dry summers. In areas with mild winters, it can be sown in early fall for winter flowering.
Cut off dead heads of poppies, and the flowers will continue to give off new blooms.
