Papaver Paeoniflorum: We’ve grown this pink poppy here at the Red House for several years, and the bees love these massed blooms. Flower heads vary in size from about 25mm-100mm or more! Stems are upright and strong, growing to about 82cm tall. Scatter poppy seed on ordinary worked soil, in full sun, in early fall or as soon as the earth is visible in spring. Press seed lightly into the earth but do not cover. Light watering, being careful not to dislodge the seeds, is beneficial. Fall planting will result in spring blooms; spring planting bestows late summer blooms. Generally grows well in zones 5-8 but may be even hardier. Let us know! Does not transplant well. 226 grams of seed should cover 185 sq.metres in a scattered flower format known as “meadow seeding”. Seed is not edible. Contains approx. 15 g.
