Product Description

Breadseed Poppy 'Black Beauty'
Papaver spp.

Grown primarily for their decorative seed pods, Breadseed poppies are easy to grow and make a wonderful addition to any garden. The plum and red petals on this towering plant look as if they belong to an exotic winged bird. After the flowers fade, they leave behind an abundance of interesting, textural seed pods.

Details:
Plant type: annual
Height: 36-48”
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 80-90 days
Plant spacing: 9-12”
Pinch: not necessary
Approx seeds per packet: 200

How to Grow:
Breadseed poppies resent transplanting and do best when direct sown. Plant directly into the garden after all danger of frost has passed. Slugs love them, so keep an eye out.

Harvesting/Vase Life:
The flowers of this variety of poppy aren’t particularly long lasting. Cut flowers last just 2-3 days in the vase if you’re lucky. Harvest when ½ open and sear the bottom end in boiling water for 7-10 seconds. Seed pods can be dried and used indefinitely.
