Poppy Fire Circle
GENUS: Papaver SPECIES: paeoniflorum
Heritage Status: New Zealand
Number of Seeds: 200
Description: Annual 1m, Cottage Garden. We were sent this poppy years ago by a member, we all but lost it. We planted the last of the seeds and only one grew and flowered by the fire circle. They’re all exactly the same, layers and layers of pink with dark pink centres very double and very frilly. Simply stunning!
Planting Instructions: Plant into trays early Spring and early Autumn prick out at 2.5 cm diagonal spacing when first two leaves appear. Transplant very carefully (roots do not like being disturbed) when 3 cm high at 30 cm diagonals spacing. Will self seed readily. They can also be direct sown.
