Papaver somniferum ‘Pepperbox’ | ‘Opium Poppy’ | Seeds
Papaver somniferum ‘Pepperbox’ is a fantastic heirloom variety of the magnificent ‘Opium Poppy’! A grey-green stemmed poppy with large, fabulous lilac-burgundy-red, semi-fringed flowers and hefty seed pods, ‘Pepperbox’ will reach up to approximately one and a half metres in height once mature.
A flowering annual which is easily cultivated from seed, Papaver 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 3-9, allow adequate drainage and you’ll soon have your very own – wildly colourful – poppy patch!
