Flanders Poppy, Red Corn Poppy
Papaver nudicaule cv
A native of Europe better known to Australians and New Zealanders as the Flanders Poppy after the World War I battlefields of Belgium and worn by them as a mark of respect to their casualties of war.
A hardy annual that readily self-seeds. The large 50 – 100ml blooms are fire engine red vividly marked with purplish-black centres individually borne on 0.3m to 0.4m stems. Once flowering commences the foliage becomes inconspicuous allowing the flower to express its full beauty.
This poppy prefers well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade and performs best if sown in late autumn in warmer regions or early spring in colder ones.
USDA all continental zones.
Offered is a packet of approximately 100 seeds and Grownotes to assist you to cultivate this lovely poppy.
All my seed is posted in bubble wrap protection.
