(Papaver somniferum) A show stopper. Even flower farming veterans are astonished by these beauties when touring our home farm in past years. Impossibly huge peony-like pastel blooms from white to rose to deep purple. Not pastel, like easter kitsch, but pastel, like gorgeous antique flower paintings. The gene pool spans singles and doubles, many with frilly deeply serrated petals. Very top-heavy, 3-4’ plants benefit from staking or dense cluster-planting for support. Old and rare variety.
