Papaver A beautiful color selection with mostly pink on the outer two thirds of the petal edge with a slight purple blush in the middle and on the petal backs. Double, but not a full pompon; the fringes on the petal ends give it a spider-aster or cactus-dahlia look. The grower enthuses about how much he enjoys a field of these in full bloom. Reblooms after deadheading, though the blooms are smaller. 3'. ①

Annual. Sensuous luxurious flowers, about 2½–3' tall. We offer two heirloom breadseed varieties especially suitable for baking. Poppies make wondrous cutflowers: choose buds that have straightened up but not quite opened. Immediately sear the cut stem with a flame and put in water. Poppies open after several hours—an austere bouquet in the evening can become a riot of colors the next morning.
Culture: Need light to germinate. Sow outside in spring after frost or sow in fall for early blooms the following summer. Thin to 9–12". Like full sun. Will self sow.
All flowers are open-pollinated except where noted.
Days in parentheses after a variety indicate days to first bloom.
