Poppy - Shirley (Heirloom) Papaver rhoeas
Annual - Old fashioned, silky-petalled poppies bloom in a palette that includes both vivid hues and pastel shades. The 3" satiny blossoms on slender nodding stems provide luminous color and graceful dancing motion for many weeks. Colors include scarlet, pale pink, rich salmon, clear rose and soft white and occasional marvelous bi-colors in single, double and semi-double flounced forms. These easy-to-grow, romantic European wild-flowers are the essence of spring; no flower lover should be without their beauty!
