A truly fabulous New & Exclusive introduction from Thompson & Morgan. Huge 7-10cm (3-4in) diameter, fully-double pom-pom flower heads stand tall and proud above glaucous foliage. The stunning flowers are followed by large, attractive seed heads which look wonderful in dried flower arrangements.

Sow in large drifts in borders as an easy-to-grow annual which will attract admiration from passers-by and neighbours!


Culinary note: All poppies are poisonous. However the seeds produced from Papaver somniferum can be eaten and are used for adding extra flavour, crunch and bite to breads and cakes. The seeds of other poppy species are not edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.
