Welcome your new best friend into the sunny annual bed and your finest patio containers! This stunning Dutch mix of pastel shades on double and semi-double blooms will wow you with beautifully textured, softly colored blooms all summer long!

Twister is a mix of soft, vintage shades of yellow, orange, and cream, with some powdery pink tossed in for contrast. The flowers are 2 to 2½ inches wide, with the crinkly, glossy petals we associate with California Poppies. They face upwards on very low-growing, dense mounds of bright green, ferny foliage. In full bloom, the finely cut leaves almost disappear entirely beneath the huge bouquet of blooms!

Reaching just 10 inches high in full bloom and spreading 8 to 12 inches wide, Twister is compact enough for many types of container, and looks terrific at the front of the annual bed, along garden paths, and covering bare spots in the foundation. It is an absolute snap to grow, either by direct-sowing the seed in early spring or starting the seedlings indoors and transplanting them young. And the best part is that you should only have to sow these seeds once: Twister is happy to reseed if the final blooms are allowed to remain on the plant until they drop!

Twister has already won the Fleuroselect Quality Mark in Europe, and it's easy to see why. This open-pollinated variety is just so easy, so beautiful, and so dependable! Actually a half-hardy annual, it self-sows so readily that it will return year after year in the same patches of soil without losing a jot of color or size. And the blooms are so profuse!

This Poppy does best in areas where summers are not humid and the soil is well-drained. Improve your garden soil with sand if need be, or grow in containers if drainage is an issue. Otherwise, all Twister needs is plenty of sunshine and water! You will adore this carefree, colorful bloom machine for years to come. Pkt is 100 seeds.
