Poppy Shirley Double Mix, commonly known as an English Poppy, is a specialty crop developed as a subspecies of the common field poppy. Well formed, mounded base plants send up wiry stems with whimsical, crinkled papery, double petaled blooms that appear to float and dance in the breeze. This delightful double petal variety is a cheerful mix of pink, red and white shades and makes a stunning color point of interest when planted in mass. Plants grow 20" to 28" inches tall. Shirley Poppies are sun loving and prefer rich well drained soil. An excellent early season bloomer, this variety can be planted in fall to overwinter or in early spring before other crops get underway for the season. A cut flower favorite when properly treated with post harvest protocol. To extend the blooming season, plant in succession groupings for season-long color in your garden beds. Packet: approx. 500 seeds.
