A gorgeous annual poppy with a delightful combination of shades, ranging from deepest burgundy-red to pinkish-red, the lower petals are artfully striped with silver-grey. Flowers are a mix of doubles and singles.
Easily grown in a sunny position, it looks beautiful if mass planted. For cut flowers gather 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.
