Poppy, Food Not Lawns Remix (Organic)

Papaver somniferum.

Large, single blooms vary from light purple/white, to pink, red, magenta, and dark purple. This beautiful, easy to grow poppy population is the species commonly used for medicinal purposes. Adapted to our growing region, it is very hardy. Try sowing in the fall for early spring flowering. Can be sown in the spring with great success as well. Our original seed came from two accessions at different autumn Food Not Lawns seed swaps in Eugene, Oregon.
