(Papaver rhoeas) A lovely mixture of misty and subtle shades. The late Sir Cedric Morris, painter and gardener, presumably years ago selected and named this mixture of pale and smoky colors as grey, lilac, mauve, pink, soft orange and white. Various flowers have flecking in the same tones and some delightful picotees. This refined mixture has a good balance of pastel colors. It is one of the most subtle poppy mixtures to grow in the garden. Easy, direct seeding on almost any soil, in full sun or partial shade. Stunning!

Review:

Absolutely breathtaking. Started blooming this week (6/24) and very prolific. Blooms only last 1, max 2 days at most. But the beauty makes up for the brevity. Started all my seeds indoors and transplanted. Excellent germination, grows well, and very sturdy. I am a fan of the Papaver rhoeas varieties, as they are known to be hardy, germinate well, and be easy to grow. Next year I will grow more of these as they are more breathtaking than even the Flanders/American Legion variety, which I also love. I'm on the hunt for "Amazing Grey" variety, as these are so haunting and ethereal and will mix nicely with my other poppies.

Review:

I live in zone 5 with the last frost usually around mid-May. Sowed these 4/25/18 (literally just scattered and watered lightly) and they were about an inch tall with 4 leaves by 5/23/18. Seemed like all of the seeds germinated! They also managed to escape the hungry bunnies which was miraculous, as some nearby Breadseed Poppies weren't so lucky. Grew really well in part-shade (maybe only 3 hours sun) with regular watering to get them started, then moderate to dry conditions once established. They did have trouble staying upright at times so next year I'll try to plant more together or stake them. My honey bees went crazy over these! Loved all the colors. The reddish-pink was particularly beautiful with vein-like lines in the petals. The first blooms were around the first week of July so I'd suggest fall-sowing if you have a shortish growing season like me. They continued to bloom through about late August and left me plenty of seeds to harvest.

Review:

I’m so amazed by the germination of these poppy seeds. I planted the whole packet of poppy seeds in a planter box in February. I left the planter box on the back porch to help protect the seedlings from frost, and used a spray bottle to keep the soil and seeds moist. What a surprise. It would seem that all the seeds sprouted. Now close to the end of March I’ve been slowly transplanting the seedlings around the front and back yard. I definitely recommend these poppy seeds. I’ve also purchased two other kinds of poppy seeds and I’m very excited to see them all in bloom.

Review:

This was the first time I was successful with poppies. I've tried many times before, but failed. I direct sowed the seeds in the fall, they overwintered, and then bloomed in the spring. I really loved the colors in this mix, and will definitely be growing it again! If you want to see them growing in my garden, you can check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkUHhQWA40s
