2 10 $2.00 - $10.00
A mixture of two papaver somniferum varieties- Danish Flag Poppy and Gigantuem #2 poppies. They prefer a cool climate (over hot weather), and grow best in loose, well drained soil. Scatter seeds during the fall or early spring as soon as the last winter snow recedes. Starting poppies at the edge of melting snow is recommended. This particular Giganteum #2 poppy is pink with a white cross and will grow to 5' - 6' tall with flowers as large as 8" across. The seed pods produced are GIANT. Freeze seeds for 48 hours before sowing to increase the germination rate. Full sun to partial shade.
