Description

The reddest of all of the oriental poppies! Papaver bracteatum, also known as the Iranian poppy or Persian poppy and the great scarlet poppy, is a sturdy hardy perennial poppy with large deep red flowers up to 8 inches (20 cm) in diameter on stiff stalks up to 4 feet (1.22 metres) high with a prominent black spot near the base of the petals. It is closely related to the commonly cultivated oriental poppy, Papaver orientale and is sometimes recorded as the varietal form Papaver orientale var. bracteatum

These flowers are a deep true-red! These seeds are rare to find, as most of the oriental poppy reds are an orange-red (which we also offer). 

Plants live eternally, throughout the years, and do not need to be replanted. This red poppy is hardy as cold as zone 4. Consider planting it with blue or purple lupins, for bold colors, and the plants bloom at the same time in late spring and early summer. Oriental poppies have fern-like foliage.

Type: Perennial, will return each year.

Height: 80 cm, 34"

Location: Full sun

Hardiness zones: 3-8

Note: Ornamental use only. These seeds and/or plants are poisonous.

Seeds per pack: 20

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Sow the seeds just on the surface a sterile seed-start mix and water in. Do not bury the seeds. Then, cover the container and keep in a completely dark location. Darkness is required for germination. Keep lightly moist and do not let the soil dry out. Keep at 20-22 °C, 68-72 °F. After 10 days, check daily for signs of germination. Seeds germinate within 10-30 days.
