Peony Poppy 'Black' is a stunning bread seed poppy that features magnificent 4" to 5" inch raven-black colored fully double flower blooms comprised of a mass of layered, crinkly petals. Resembling dramatic black poms tosseling in the wind, these blooms are a true garden treasure and cast a captivating spell all their own! Not only do they have an intoxicating moody beauty in the garden when in bloom, they bring an encore performance after they shed their petals with their interesting seed pods. Oblong pods are highly sought after by floral creatives for use both fresh and dried.

Although they are short lived as cut flower blooms, if properly processed they can give up to 3 days of vase life. Well worthy of growing in your garden for their beauty and dual purpose as blooms and seed pods.

These easy to grow, sun loving plants grow 30" to 36" inches and produce 6 to 12 flowers. If left overwinter they will self-sow seed and reappear come spring. Hardy to zone 3. Seeds seeds need to be cold stratified to germinate. Packet: approx. 200 seeds.
