Poppy, Mother of Pearl

91% of 100

Annual. A lovely mixture of misty and subtle shades! It's said late painter and gardener Sir Cedric Morris selected and named this mixture of pale and smoky colors as grey, lilac, mauve, pink, soft orange, and white. Flowers may have flecking in the same tones and some delightful picotees. It is one of the most subtle poppy mixtures to grow in the garden. Easy, direct seeding on almost any soil. Stunning!
