Seeds - Poppy, Scarlet Peony OG (F)
This item may be out of season or currently out of stock. Please check back.
Description: Passion is the feeling that comes immediately to mind with this poppy! The huge blood-red flowers are fully double, definitely similar to double peonies, and remarkable as a cut flower. For the best staying power as a cut flower, the heads blooms should be harvested unopen and the cut end of the stem immediately seared with a lighter (then placed immediately into freshwater).
The best way to sow these is to direct seed into the early spring garden, as soon as the soil can be lightly worked but while temperatures are still cool. Surface sow or gently press into the soil. Sprinkle a little moistened compost or light soil over the area to help the seeds stay in place.
This type of poppy is very difficult to successfully start indoors and transfer to the garden, so we strongly recommend direct seeding outdoors.
