Antique Flemish Poppy
Certified Organic Seed
Delightfully puffy blooms in pink and white.
These plush candy-pink blooms unfold in layers of white-mottled ruffles. In the 18th century, this variety was named equal to a particularly favored flower of the time: the carnation. You'll also see them featured in many 17th century Dutch and Flemish paintings. The double blooms span 4-5" and are beloved by bees and other pollinators. Save seeds for use in baking or for another crop.

For best results, winter sow poppy seeds or sow in very early spring in a prepared garden bed. Thin seedlings to 12-18" apart. Alternately, start indoors in early spring by pressing the seeds into the soil, but do not cover them. Keep in a cool place. Transplant when small without disturbing the roots. Once flowering, water infrequently.
