Cultivar Notes - 'Mix'
Large, cup-shaped, silky flowers in a mix of colors, May-June. Use for accent, cutting, borders.
Genus Notes - Papaver
Endlessly colorful, bowl-shaped late-spring and early summer blooms are held aloft on fuzzy stems above deeply lobed foliage. Poppies require well-drained soil. They falter in extreme heat and humidity.

In the center of a poppy's flower rests a very large, velvety-black seed capsule surrounded by prominent, dark purple stamens. Altogether, these flowers absolutely steal the show when they are in bloom. After the bloom cycle is completed however, these perennials will go dormant, so plan on planting other plants nearby to fill in the gaps.
