Opium Poppy, red, single
Type/Hardiness Annual, Hardy
Flowering period June-August
Height 36-48in/1-1.5m
Light preference Full sun
Soil preference Light, free-draining
Sowing time/depth Autumn or Spring, barely cover
Harvested from deep-coral-pink plants with a darker eye and occasional fringes, but although common varieties growing near these were removed as soon as identified, it cannot be guaranteed that all these seeds will breed true - however, a very reasonable proportion should do so.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Direct sow in autumn or spring, in a sunny position, thinning to about 9-15in apart.
