Poppy Paeony (Papaver Somniferum Flemish Antique) 750 seeds (#1644)

The bold colorful flowers and fruits of this large, fast-growing annual have been treasured by gardeners since ancient times.
This poppy flowers come in red and cream shade colour, and the ornamental, bulbous seedpods are the source of culinary poppyseeds, which are used to flavor breads and cakes. Of obscure origin, this poppy is thought to be native to the eastern Mediterranean region.
This annual produces rosettes of large, lobed, bluish-green leaves in spring. The leaves are hairless and have ruffled and toothed edges. In late spring and early summer, plants bear showy, papery, four-petaled flowers on tall leafy stems. The solitary, bowl-shaped blooms are typically pink, mauve-lavender, scarlet or white, often with contrasting eye blotches. Double-flowered forms are often available. Large, decorative, urn-shaped seed capsules follow the flowers, their pleated caps opening to disperse many small black seeds. The seeds readily self-sow the following year. Plants die back after blooming.
This annual grows in full sun in moderately fertile, average, well-drained soil.
This is not an annual that transplants well, so directly sow seed in the ground in fall or early spring.
