Papaver somniferum ‘Album’ | ‘Opium Poppy’ | ~100 seeds
‘Album’ is a wonderful, white-flowered Papaver somniferum (‘Opium Poppy’) variety, desirable for its ornamental beauty and as a prolific seasonal source of nutritious seed. Growing to roughly sixty centimetres tall once fully mature.
Easily cultivated from seed, somniferum grows in full and sheltered sun, in clay, chalk, loam or sand (either acid, alkaline or neutral). Just make sure that you’re somewhere in USDA Hardiness Zones 7-11, allow adequate drainage and you’ll soon have your very own – wildly colourful – poppy patch!
All the seed sold by Arkham’s Botanical was freshly and ethically sourced
