Florist Pepperbox Poppy

Rating:
94% of 100

Annual. Breadseed-type poppy in shades of red, purple, and pink. The papery blooms are so large and showy! And after blooming is done, large pods yield blue-gray poppy seeds that are ideal for use in baking and confections. Simply shake the seeds out and store them, then use the empty pods in dried arrangements. At 3-4' in height, the brilliant flowers and prickly, gray-green foliage are quite a sight!
