A dramatic new Poppy with striking scarlet flowers which have a dark purple-blue centre, opening to form an Elizabethan style ruff. The strong, tall stems boast large, highly ornamental, silver-green orientale foliage. Variable seed was sent by a customer to T&M, and breeders have selected for uniformity and trueness to type, resulting in this bright border and cottage garden annual.
Culinary note: All poppies are poisonous. However the seeds produced from Papaver somniferum and Papaver paeoniflorum can be eaten and are used for adding extra flavour, crunch and bite to breads and cakes. The seeds of other poppy species are not edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.
