Poppy Seeds, Papaver somniferum, Mixed Color Breadseed Poppy Seeds, Great for Cottage Gardens
Papaver somniferum is sometimes known as Bread Seed Poppy or Breadbox Poppy. The large papery poppy flowers are a welcome sight in spring gardens. The poppy seeds are a mix of rich reds and purples. The mix contains a lot of Lauren's Grape Poppy. Lauren's Grape is a lovely purple that reseeds true to color. There is also a lot of fringed "Heirloom" poppies in pink, purple, and red. There may be a few doubles but I find this to be a weak trait that breeds itself out. Dried seedpods make wonderful additions to dried arrangements and craft projects.
Each packet contains a minimum of 700 seeds. They are small and tricky to count so extras are included.
I've been growing great poppies for over 20 years and each order comes complete with my growing instructions and tips. Seeds are packed in simple kraft paper envelopes.
