Shirley Poppy Pandora
Shirley Poppy ‘Pandora’
We consider this the sultry sister to ‘Amazing Grey’. Both varieties have a haunting purple-grey hue, but ‘Pandora’ is a metallic merlot. This vigorous and free-flowering mix features lots of double and ruffled blooms that flutter in the breeze. Perfect for personal use and event work. After blooms drop they leave behind adorable, chocolate-capped seed pods.

How to Grow:
Shirley poppies resent transplanting. Direct sow into the garden after all danger of frost has passed. Can be started indoors, just take care when planting out not to disturb the roots too much.
Individual flowers are short-lived, lasting 3-4 days if stem ends are seared 7-10 seconds in boiling water. Harvest when flowers are just opening.
