55-65 days to flower 1-1.5 feet tall Papaver rhoeas

Pure joy! We adore these vivid crimson petals, so soft as the sway in the breeze and Friends, as you look closer, you’ll see a remarkable ocean of diversity in the sea of blooms: petal centers range from red to shimmering black to bright burgundy to cream. Each seedhead and accompanying may be lime, lemon yellow, ebony or plum. Some petal margins are even scalloped with cream! Each of us are unique and each seed is, as well; few seeds shine with the resplendent diversity and grace of Cornfield Poppy.

What’s in a name? These poppies are a common weed in the south of France, where they’ve been growing alongside grains (generically called ‘corn’ before maize ever made it to France) for millennia. Perhaps one day we’ll have more poppies than bindweed, lol! We have many dreams, it’s true ~

Poppies thrive in gardens as well as raised beds and containers, even in partial sun and marginal soil. A gently re-seeding annual, poppies often have a perennial presence in your garden, though establishing poppies from seed is often challenging. Enjoy our Secrets to Growing Poppies blog!

At Fruition, we sow most organic poppy seeds in soil blocks indoors 2 months before final frost to transplant 1 month before final frost, since they love to establish in cool soils, including fall. For more tips and tutorials like this delivered straight to your inbox, sign up here!
