Poppies add a splash of color to the flower bed, they’re easy to grow, and there are hundreds of poppy varieties to choose from. With so many different poppy plants available, the biggest problem for gardeners is narrowing down the selection! Problem Solved. Get all kinds of varieties with one order.

The papery texture and brilliant colors of poppy blooms give this plant nirvana status to some gardeners. The Papaveraceae family of plants includes several genera and dozens of species of poppies, but the most common garden poppies are found in the Papaver genus, with the most prominent species being P. Orientale and P. somniferum. There are, however, other species of poppies that true plant geeks might want to consider. Most poppies are short-lived perennials, and some are annuals.

This massive mixture of poppies is positively majestic as they sway in the breeze atop wiry stems. The regal, highly-ruffled heads reach an impressive 5" across and sit proudly atop 2-3' stems. We adore this variety for landscape and floral design. Plant en masse, or use sparingly as a focal point. With a captivating elegance in both landscape and arrangements, it has become a highly sought-after cult favorite of high-end florists who reserve poppies for the finest design work! The 3' plants have sturdy stems and produce large, single lavender-to-pink blooms. Petals fall back, revealing pods among the largest we've grown! Highly sought after by flower farmers, high-end floral designers, and home gardeners alike. Loads of seeds are stuffed into these big pods, making it a popular choice among bakers and heirloom chefs!

Growing Tips: Direct sow in late fall, or in spring as soon as soil can be worked. Surface sow, just barely covering. Grows best in cool, early spring conditions in rich soil, with moderate moisture.

Poppies grow from long tap roots that do not take kindly to digging and moving. And the plants require considerable care when dividing to propagate new plants. Dig very deeply, and take care that each clump division has some sections of the long, carrot-like roots, some of the above-ground stem, and at least one growth eye.
