Poppy – Shirley Summer Mix (Papaver rhoeas)

Poppy Shirley Summer Mix

These beautiful poppies are a delight in any springtime garden – their nodding heads of fragile looking tissue-papery blooms come in many shades and tints and can be single or double blooms. Selected for their colour variations in the late 1800’s from the Flanders Poppy, and painstakingly developed in the village of Shirley in England, the Shirley Summer Poppy strains are delightful in a bee and butterfly garden, old English Cottage Garden, or a wildflower garden.
