Poppy – Shirley Double Mix


The Shirley Poppy was developed as a subspecies from the Red Poppy.  It comes in shades of pink, red and white.  As well as in double or single petal arrangements.  This flower can be spring, or fall planted in the United States.  It prefers to be planted in an area with full sun.  The Shirley Poppy will not abide root agitation, so it can only be transplanted if it is done when it is very small.  This flower should be planted directly outdoors, in the ground.  The seeds for the Shirley Poppy are very small, and only need to be planted as deep as the size of the seed and they are very tiny.  Often success can be found by scattering the seeds on top of loose garden soil and watering them in.
