Season to flower
Native to Europe, North Africa, and Asia. The flowers emerge from drooping hairy buds and are born on stems. The flowers measure some 7–10 cm across and have four bright red petals wrapped around dark stamens. The seeds are edible and come from the egg-shaped capsules.
How to plant
Corn poppies grow everywhere but for best performance they grow in areas where summers are not extremely hot and humid. Plants grow best in full sun, but will appreciate some shade. They will grow well-drained soil that is fertile.
We invite you to join us in planting the seed of hope: deepen your relationship with nature, protect and wonder at our vast Earth.
