Peony Poppy Salmon (Papaver Paeoniflorum Salmon), 30 seeds per package

Peony poppies are easy-to-grow flowers that cheer-up and add spark to the garden. They are planted in fall or early spring and produce huge, double 4-5 in. wide, deeply frilled flowers on sturdy, 2-3 ft. tall plants. Perfect for the bed, border and as a cut flower, these annuals grown from peony seeds are a wonderful addition to any flower garden. Salmon peony poppy flowers burst forth with lovely salmon colored blooms. The seed pods that form after the bloom are spent is very attractive, and it they can be dried and preserved for used in dried arrangements.

Plant these seeds indoors in late winter. Use peat pots and starter mix for best results. Sow the flower seeds on the surface and press the seeds into the soil. Peony seeds need light to germinate. Keep flower seeds moist until germination.

Another option used by many gardeners is to plant the flower seed outdoors. Papaver Paeoniflorum seeds can be sown in the late fall, late winter, or early spring. Prepare the soil by loosening the top several inches, spread the flower seeds and lightly rake, then firm the soil. Thin the young seedlings to 15 - 18 inches apart. These annual plants are known to be prolific self-sowers dropping their seeds and coming back year after year.
