This is quite simply, the best possible poppy you can grow.
'Champagne Bubbles' way out-stripped all others in our Perch Hill trial. It comes in a beautiful mix of white, pink, yellow and various tones of orange. Flowering on and off for over six months, with great chiffon cup flowers which last well once cut. I absolutely love it. These can be tricky to get to planting-out stage, so let us do that for you.
Grow in a deep, fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Pick or deadhead to prolong flowering but allow some self-seeding at end of season. It should over-winter to flower earlier and for longer the following year.
