Single Packet of 10,000 Seeds
Grow a garden filled with beautiful, double mixed Shirley Poppies from freshly harvested Papaver rhoeas flower seeds. These Shirley Poppies will produce a gorgeous blend of pastel colors in shades of pink, red and white. The flowers are double petaled, paper like in appearance and have yellow centers. The plants themselves will reach a mature height of roughly 12 to 30 inches tall, displaying attractive foliage and thin, furry stems.
Grown as an annual flowering plant, Shirley Poppies will grow quickly from freshly harvested seeds. They will bloom profusely for a few short weeks and then later wilt during the late Autumn season. Although Shirley Poppies are considered annual flowering plants, their seeds can fall to the bare ground, allowing new plants to emerge the following season. Like most Poppies, these plants are most attractive when sown by the masses. They can be seen in fields & in a naturalized setting, and often times look great in flower beds & raised beds as well.
Shirley Poppies are known to attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden, such as butterflies, bumblebees, ladybugs & even hummingbirds as well. They are fairly easy to establish from seed, and can be scattered directly outdoors to the surface of the sowing area.
