POPPY - RED LEGION (Field Poppy)

POPPY Red Legion (Field Poppy) papaver rhoeas The original blood red poppy with the black centre that commemorates the fallen soldiers of Flanders fields. Stunning when grown in a mass. Type: Annual Light: full sun Soil: not fussy Spacing: 20cm Height: 80cm Season: June through September Propagation: Direct seed in early spring or autumn. Cover lightly. Sow seeds in autumn for early blooms in the spring. They despise transplanting. SEED COUNT: Approx. 900 Note: 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. Hint: Cutting down spent stalks may induce another flush of blooms.
