Plants grow to a tall 1-1.2m and flower in June to August. These are good border plants. The seed pods are ornamental in winter, and look good in dried flower arrangements. Plants will self-seed in following years, but may not look the same if they have been pollinated from different varieties of poppies nearby.Opium Poppies grow best in full sun and can cope with all soils except water logging. They tend to look best growing in groups. Sowing: Sow in autumn or spring directly in the ground. Or sow in early spring in pots of multi-purpose compost, keep at room temperature and germination takes 2-4 weeks. Plant out after hardening off, disturbing the roots as little as possible. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet. Parts of the plant are considered toxic.PlantGenesis is a Crowders Marketplace Seller.
