Description

Poppy - Legion of Honor (Heirloom) Papaver rhoeas

Annual - Classic crimson corn poppies have elegant cup-shaped single blossoms that glow in the sun with concentrated lustrous color. They blanket open fields throughout late spring and early summer all over Western Europe and have come to symbolize the valor of fallen soldiers. The brilliant 3 - 4" silky flowers sway gracefully on nodding stems 1.5 - 2' above finely cut foliage. This beloved antique flower re-sows easily to bloom generously every year.

Soil & Water: Weed and water young seedlings carefully. Mature plants can handle dry conditions but appreciate regular water in hot summer locations.

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds directly into a finely textured garden bed in full sun as early in spring as ground can be worked. To help space the fine seeds, mix with dry sand before sowing. Cover very lightly with fine soil and keep seedbed moist as seedlings emerge over 7 - 14 days. Be sure to thin crowded seedlings early; final plant spacing should be 4 - 6" apart.
