POPPY - DANISH FLAG

Papaver somniferum - A large white centre is surrounded by blood-red ruffled petals. Ht. 90 cm, Sp.40 Like the skirts of flamenco dancers or ballerinas, the satiny petals of crushed silk dazzle the senses. In 1932, garden writer Henry J. Moore wrote “They occur in colours which baffle description, comprising such delicate shades as apricot and salmon, and among pinks such as rose, blush and flesh and through to the most brilliant of crimsons.” Used for centuries for beauty, magic and medicine, these easy to grow annuals are loved by young and old. Poppies are tap-rooted and do not take well to transplanting, so sow the seeds in flowering position in early spring or fall, thin and deadhead to keep flowers coming. Dried seed pods are excellent in bouquets. Though the ripe seeds of the somniferum (incl. paeoniflorum) are edible for poppy seed cakes and breads, please note that the plant\'s sap is toxic. Poor soil O.K. SEED COUNT: 900 plus
