Papaver somniferum ‘Kykeon Tasmanian’ | ‘Opium Poppy’ | ~100 seeds
‘Kykeon Tasmanian’ is a great Papaver somniferum hybrid from UK master grower Kykeon, combining the prolific white ‘Bush Poppy’ with the classic ‘Izmir Tasmanian’! Producing vigorous, roughly one-and-a-half metre tall poppies that form large, rounded seedpods, this is a wonderful addition to your poppy collection.
Papaver somniferum, aka the notorious annual ‘Opium Poppy’, comes in many gorgeous and colourful varieties and is incredibly easy to cultivate from seed. Grow in full sun to partial shade, in clay, chalk, loam or sand, acid, alkaline or neutral soil. Make sure it’s well-drained and (for best results) that you’re in USDA Hardiness Zones 7-11.
