And They Call It Poppy Love!
The hour of Poppy planting is nigh!

Coming 'atcha in almost any color you can imagine, our Giant Poppies are the superstars of the Spring garden. And NOW, temperate garden friends, is the time to plant them for maximum Spring bountitude (our patient cold-weather garden brethren should wait to plant until the ground can be worked come Spring).

We grow more than 20 varieties of these hardy annuals, many of which are Breadseed types that grow 3-4' tall with regal 4-5" crepe paper blooms in a rainbow of colors. For maximum thrills, give 'em sun, rich soil and deadhead spent blooms.

We like to underplant Poppies with lower growing Spring bloomers like Malcolmia, CA native Nemophilas and Cerinthe major purpurascens. They'll fill in and around your Poppies and make your gardens look fab. Tip: Try toasting the edible Breadseed Poppy seeds – they're delicious in pastries and breads. With zillions of fragrant seeds spilling out of their dramatic and giant pods – you'll have plenty for baking, the birdies and a bounty of freebie seedlings next Spring!
