Cultivation
Best sown direct as they dislike having their roots disturbed. Sow in spring, or in autumn for earlier flowers the following year. Poor, free-draining soil in full sun is best. Sow seed thinly and thin to 30cm.

Description

These are THE ruffled silk poppies, a beautiful mix of oranges, pinks, reds and cream above elegant blue-silver, highly cut leaves.

They will self-seed at the front of the border and through impoverished gravel where we have them at Perch Hill. A showy, glamorous new introduction.

Care Tips

Great for growing in container pots or borders with poor soil where it will thrive on neglect and freely self-seed. Deadhead regularly to encourage more blooms.
