This is a mix of poppy seed from GSC’s Chesaw trial gardens in the Okanogan Highlands. A mix of all sorts of hardy poppies that will go wild in your garden and come back on their own if you let them self-seed. A riotous bouquet of colors that blooms all summer. At home in a formal garden or naturalizing in a meadow.
Young leaves make tasty and nutritious greens for salads and stir-fries. Lovely cut flowers. Also known as Shirley and Oriental Poppies. Plants are source for herbal remedies and fabric dyes. Permaculture, polyculture and homestead favorite.
Direct seed in May when soil is still cool, 1/8" deep, and thin to 6" apart in average soil and full sun. Magically, you have flowers all summer. Poppies self-seed readily. Select for the plants you want to propagate by removing immature seed pods of the plants you don’t want to keep.
