Poppy Shirley Single Mixed

Overview

Botanical Name: Papaver rhoeas

The gently fluttering heads of Shirley Poppy are a delightful sight in Spring. Showy, free flowering and so easy to grow, they are one of our most popular garden flowers. Our mixture includes red, pink, white, rose and crimson single flowers. A hardy annual, it prefers a warm sunny position and a well-drained soil.

 We hope you enjoy these poppy seeds, just another great example of flower seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!
