2.5-3' tall 48-55 days to harvest Gently Self-Sowing Annual Papaver somniferum

HEIRLOOM If you think poppies are magic (they are) and succulents are darling (indeed), these blossoms are the best of both worlds! The most unusual poppy we’ve ever seen, silky rose petals awash with lavender float on 2.5 to 3-foot stalks as dozens of miniature seedheads encircle their main seedhead, glorious in the garden and in a vase. Best of all, bees love to swim in the small ocean of pollen-laden anthers inside each flower!

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.

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!
