Listing Detail Tabs

Opium poppy seeds - scarlet red flowers, double peony packed with petals. Flowers are large and around 8-10cm across on stems up to 1m tall. They make a good display with flowers successively opening over several weeks in summer. They are useful cut flowers lasting several days in water if the stems are scalded or bruised.

The seed heads are attractive in the own right as they are large and round - around 2-4 cm across. They are used in dry flower arrangements.

They are in the papaver somniferum group but, to my knowledge, do not produce opiate.

You are bidding on a minimum of 50 seeds.

Annual. Seeds freely so once you have some you should be able to keep them in your garden year after year. Suits sun and average to dry sites.

Seeds are fine, but relatively easy to grow. Germinate in autumn, winter and spring. Keep the potting mix relatively dry.

I am willing to combine with other seed purchases for delivery. I recommend delivery by courier and can send any number of packets of seeds at the advertised shipping cost. Otherwise, you can choose delivery by NZ Post at your risk and up to 4 packets of seeds can fit in one envelope. I will not replace seeds lost in post. I do not sent seeds with consignments of live plants. Please click here to ask a question
