Papaver somniferum ‘Kykeon White’ | ‘Opium Poppy’ | ~100 seeds
Apparently originating from selective breeding from ‘Izmir’ genetics in the UK, ‘Kykeon White’ is a hardy, vigorous Papaver somniferum (‘Opium Poppy’) variety, growing to over a metre tall and producing large, white to whitish flowers with frilled edges.
Easily cultivated from seed, ‘Kykeon White’ 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
