Poppy - Amazing Grey Shirley Poppy
Soft, misty white, slate blue and lavender grey flowers bloom in abundance. Ruffled single and double flowers look like they are made of tissue paper as they dance in the wind. Individual flowers may change colour over time. Use flowers and seed pods in cut flower work for an elegant touch. Exquisite!
Days to maturity: 55-65 days
Bloom type: annual
Direct seed poppies in late fall or early spring. Sprinkle seed lightly on the soil surface and cover with .6 cm of soil as they require darkness to germinate. Firm soil. Poppies do not transplant well so indoor seeding is not recommended. Thin to 15 cm apart when first true leaves appear to give plants room to develop. Allow seed pods to dry on the plant then cut and place upside down in a paper bag to collect the seeds. Dry seeds and store in a glass jar.
