Papaver somniferum ‘Kykeon Afghan’ | ‘Opium Poppy’ | ~100 seeds

Papaver somniferum, aka the notorious annual ‘Opium Poppy’, comes in many gorgeous and colourful varieties, of which ‘Kykeon Afghan’ is a great example, originating from the garden of a specialist UK cultivator!

Easily grown from seed, somniferum’s gorgeous flowers crown this beautiful plant, which produces a lot of seed for cooking and such. 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
