Poppy, Giant Pod (Papaver somniferum), packet of 100 seeds


Family:  Poppy (Papaveraceae)

Generally fall-sown in Zones 7 to 10 and spring-sown in colder zones

(Giant Podded Poppy)  The flower is large, light-red, with a purple cross.  The flower gives way to an extra-large, urn-shaped pod.   Germination in cool soils takes 1 to 2 weeks.  In the warmer zones, sow in fall to overwinter as a rosette, whereupon the plant will increase significantly come spring and flower prolifically.  In the East or cooler states, better to sow in the spring and thin well, side dress with nitrogen rich fertilizer.  Flowering will occur in the early summer.
