Description

Thomas Jefferson planted "Papaver Rhoeas flor. plen. double poppy" in a Monticello oval flower bed in 1807.  This is a horticultural variety of the common European field poppy, which was immortalized in Flanders during World War I.  Corn Poppy is a hardy, self-seeding annual that bears single, red flowers in early summer.

Sow seeds outdoors in mid-spring in a prepared seedbed and lightly cover with fine soil.  Keep seedlings moist and thin to 6-12" apart to reduce competition.  Approximately 500-750 seeds per packet.
