Here’s a poppy that will reign supreme in borders all summer! This is another fabulous variety from Thompson & Morgan’s own breeding. Poppy ‘Supreme’ boasts spectacular fully double flowers which are three times larger than those of other similar papaver rhoeas varieties, and its exquisite crinkly petals with picotee edging in pink, cherry and orange tones contrast beautifully with its white centre.
Growing to a final garden height of 75cm, Poppy ‘Supreme’ is long-flowering and multi-branching, making it ideal for direct sowing into borders and beds.
It took over 6 years for our breeding team to bring Poppy ‘Supreme’ to the market. Charles Valin, who heads up Thompson & Morgan’s plant breeding team, spotted some plants in a batch of double Shirley poppies that had extra-large flowers. Two generations of selection later, Charles’ team had managed to ‘fix’ a giant-flowered mixture in double picotee bicolours to create this fantastic new poppy.Height: 75cm (30"). Spread: 30cm (12").
Charles Valin says: "We discovered that Poppy ‘Supreme’ has a very robust constitution and blooms for twice as long as traditional poppies. The flowers are really big and yet they retain their elegance and are in perfect proportion to the overall plant size".
