Description


Poppy (Papaver rhoeas)

One of the most popular wildflowers, a cornfield annual with scarlet flowers of open, sunny places.

‘But pleasures are like poppies spread: You seize the flower, its bloom is shed.’ (Robert Burns).

These bright scarlet wildflowers were once a familiar sight in cornfields throughout Scotland, but are now much less common due to modern farming methods. They flower briefly in summer & if you would like them the next year you must re-sow them as they are annuals. Up to 60cm tall.

1000+ seeds per packet.
