Poppy Seeds – Red Corn Poppy
If you’ve ever seen a field full of Red Corn Poppies, you know how breathtaking the effect can be. Planted in mass, these poppies are a show-stopper for sure. Bright red papery petals, sturdy slender stems, and extremely low-maintenance flowers – these beauties bloom in late Spring through early Summer, and have long been a gardener’s favorite.
Red Corn Poppies don’t require much care, but will appreciate a sunny spot in fairly well-drained soil.
