Shirley Poppy - Papaver rhoeas - Annual
Easy to grow, beautiful deep red poppies play marvelously with others. Pollinators love all poppies, and this intense red color will bring them in with gusto.
Blooms from early summer to late summer, to 24" and can take full sun to partial sun.
This is a reseeding annual and you can sow it in very early spring or late fall. Barely cover the seed. Keep moist through germination if sown in spring or water in fall and winter if there is no precipitation for 30 days.
My mother's name was Shirley - these are for her.
