Description

Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
This unusual short-lived yet self-seeding perennial was observed naturalizing along the New England coast as early as the 17th century. Thomas Jefferson planted seeds at Monticello in an oval bed southeast of the house in 1807. It has attractive, bluish-gray foliage and bears bright golden-yellow, poppy-like flowers followed by strange, “horned” seed pods.

Native Distribution: Europe, Northern Africa, Western Asia

Sow seeds indoors 10-12 weeks before last frost, for enhanced germination, pretreat seeds with cold, moist stratification for 3-4 weeks before sowing. Transplant to 3” pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and plant outdoors after the last frost in well-drained to dry soil. Approximately 20-25 Yellow Horned Poppy seeds per packet.
