Poppy, Danish Flag

Papaver somniferum


Full Sun

24”-36” Tall

Plant 12”-18” Apart


A flower that dates back to at least 1888 with very showy flowers with frilly petals that (surprise) bears a more than passing resemblance to the Danish flag. The plants are easy to grow, not particular on location, and put out 4” flowers on long 2 foot stems. The flowers and seed pods are ideal for drying and fresh flower arrangements, and look especially striking in mass groupings. They will also self sow pretty reliably.
