This is a strain that will be of particular interest to the floral artist as it has been specially selected to give the largest possible seed pods. Highly ornamental, they can be used fresh, or dried for winter decoration. For an easily grown splash of colour, few flowers can equal poppies with their flowers produced in profusion throughout the summer. Sow and forget, nearly all will flower in the first year from sowing.
Suitable for summer bedding, this hardy annual known as ‘Giant Poppy’ belongs to the Papavar genus.
