Most. Popular. POPPIES!
RIGHT NOW, temperate garden friends, is the best time to plant Giant Poppies for maximum Spring bountitude (for those patient souls in USDA zones 7 and below, wait to plant until the ground can be worked come Spring).
We grow more than 35 varieties of these large-flowered floozies, many of which are the Breadseed-types that grow 3-4' tall with regal 4-5" crepe paper blooms in a sumptuous rainbow of colors. But we also offer tempting and unusual species like the wild and wildflowery Papaver species 'Greek' and even super tough, drought tolerant, perennial varieties like "Moroccan Poppy." For maximum thrills and chills, pretty much all they ask for is sun, rich soil and some deadheading of spent blooms.
We like to underplant our Poppies with lower growing, Spring flowering pretties like Orlaya grandiflora, California native Nemophilas and Cerinthe major purpurea. They'll fill in and around the base of your Poppies and make your gardens look fab. Tip: Try toasting the edible breadseed poppy seeds - they're delicious in pastries and breads. With zillions of fragrant seeds spilling out of their giant pods - you'll have plenty for your baking, the birdies and a bounty of freebie seedlings next Spring!
