Cultivar from Persia flowers early and makes large pods. Traditional usage (TWM): analgesic. Spread seed on fast-draining soil in fall or very early spring. For best results, plan the planting of poppies so that they germinate and grow during cool, moist weather and flower and make seed during hot, dry weather. It takes some years of experimentation to figure out how to do this in the various temperate zones. Those in southern Oregon strew the seed with the first fall rains and finish seed harvest in June. Germination times confirmed in 2021: outdoor planting in late September germinated in 8 days. Plant prefers full sun and well-rested yet nitrogenous, fast-draining soil of neutral pH. Space plants 1 to 2 feet apart.
