Dramatic peony-headed poppy in a kaleidoscope of colours. Poppies will bloom all summer long in borders and then reseed to appear again the following year. The ruffled nodding heads are irresistable to bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects. Plant in clumps for maximum impact.

  1. A beautiful range of colours and flower heads

    By Gregory Sheppard 30-08-2012

    Amazing variety of beautyful large flower heads - most were full or triple rosettes, others were simple single rosettes in stunning colours. An excellent group display, next time I will sow in 3 week successions to extend the spectacular display.
