A new poppy with a twist! These easy to grow beautiful flowers have unique colors that seem to fade into each other. Double blooms have an antique silk look. Very delicate looking but a hardy flower!

These are also great for cut flowers. They have a crinkled look to them and various shades of pink. A dark pink starts out in the middle, fading into a light pink mixed with white on the edges. This flower turns heads in the garden!

The seeds are best sown direct, either in spring or fall (for spring blooms). If you must start them indoors, choose a deep pot and transplant the seedlings as soon as you can in spring. Sharp, well-drained, sandy soil in full sun is ideal.
