Well-known flowers such as sweet peas, poppies, stocks and sunflowers fall under this category, as do some of the more unusual flowers - gomphocarpus & ratibida for example.You may also like to view our range of half-hardy annual seeds which can be sown in early spring.
Poppy 'Blackcurrant Fizz'
Papaver somniferum, Opium PoppyAnother beautiful variety from Thompson & Morgan! Distinctive, serrated blooms in an unusually deep, burgundy shade, amazingly appear black when glistening in the summer sun, as they sit proudly above glaucous foliage. Easy-to-grow and will add drifts of colour to summer borders. The seed pods that follow flowering are also very attractive and will add interest to flower arrangements at the end of summer. Height: 90-100cm (36-40in).
Culinary note: All poppies are poisonous. However, the seeds produced by somniferum and paeoniflorum poppies only are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.More info
