Description

Papaver somniferum ‘Giganteum’ | ‘Opium Poppy’ | Seeds

Papaver somniferum, aka the notorious annual ‘Opium Poppy’, comes in many gorgeous and colourful varieties, of which ‘Giganteum’ is among the most desirable!

Easily grown from seed, somniferum’s large pink flowers (up to six inches across!) crown this giant poppy’s metre to metre and a half-tall stem, producing massive seed pods that grow up to roughly the size of a standard tennis ball!

There aren’t many species easier to grow than poppies, and this one grows with full and sheltered sun and in clay, chalk, loam or sand – whether acid, alkaline or neutral – provided it’s well-drained and situated in USDA Hardiness Zones 7-11.

All the seed sold by Arkham’s Botanical was freshly and ethically sourced in 2018-2019
