(5 customer reviews)

$4.95$59.10

Family:  Poppy (Papaveraceae)

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

(Zahir Poppy)  Overwintering annual or annual.  Purple flowers with dark basal spot give way to giant 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.  Plant prefers full sun and highly nitrogenous, fast-draining soil of neutral pH.

    I don’t write reviews on anything easily. At first poppies were hard to grow. However I knew it would work and it did. Although they come back every year and stronger than ever, I like to have a packet for a new area for a strong, yet enriching flower. Thank you for providing greatness.

    I miss the aroma of somniferum blooms!

    Unintended Zahir or Turkish red poppy doing well in an undesirable location… I will let this one play out 🙂
