Botanical Name
Papaver rhoeas 'Mother of Pearl

This selection of annual poppies was breed from a strain selected by Sir Cedric Morris (artist and gardener) who used to wander the fields and hedgerows looking for softer colours. The result is a beautiful and gentle mix of pale and smoky colours in grey, lilac, mauve, pink, soft orange and white. Easily grown in a sunny position, it looks beautiful if mass planted. They make good cut flowers if gathered early in the morning just as the green sheath is falling from the petals, but the blooms don't last long. Self seeds. 700 seeds.
