Canada Mix Poppy
Papaver. Beautiful combination of bright red and vibrant white looks great in a landscape design or as a mass border. Plant in large amounts for best results. Tall plants with brilliantly coloured petals, like crinkled silk. Great for borders, rock gardens or for cutting. Can be direct seeded in June. Hardy Annual zones 3-9. Height 15-25". Approx. 3400 seeds/pkg.
Start inside 4-6 weeks before last frost in peat pots. Cover seed lightly and provide darkness. Poppies dislike transplanting, best direct seeded once the soil warms up to 21°C. To plant, cover seed with 1⁄8” soil.
Transplant or thin plants to 10-12” apart in a full sun location. Do not over water or fertilize. Deadhead regularly. Poppies make good cut flowers if you singe the cut ends with a candle flame to stop the flow of sap. Self seeds freely.
