Poppy (Papaver Rhoeas National Mix) 2500 seeds (#1944)

Unique code:
  0 reviews

One of the most beautiful of all meadow wildflowers. The deepest red and white papery blossoms appear from early to midsummer for only a short time as the plants are true annuals that quickly die after blooming and setting seed.
Small clumps of downy, light green leaves are produced in spring. They are oblong and almost feathery. The greatest flush of bloom is in early summer when fallow fields become dotted with the glowing red flowers.
Bees and butterflies pollinate the blooms.
Grow 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.

Sow very small poppy seeds from March to May (after danger of last frost) for summer blooms directly in to the ground.
1. Select an area to plant the poppies that has full sun to partial shade.
2. Loosen the soil by digging the area with a garden fork. Poppies grow best in neutral soil. Heavy clay soil does not work well.
3. Sprinkle poppy seeds over the loose soil. The seeds are small, so they will find their way down into the crevices of the soil. Do not cover the seeds.
