Gatterman Heirloom Poppy

SKU: 0404A-P200

Item Details

Stunning...striking...splendid—superlatives abound when describing these dark-pink “chrysanthemum”-type flowers. Plants reach 2.5' tall, mature early- to mid-season, and readily self-seed. Brought to the United States from Germany by the Gatterman family in the 1800s, these poppies can stand alone or blend seamlessly into a vibrant mixed border. All plant parts except the seeds are toxic.

Growing Instructions

Instructions - Direct seeding is preferable, as poppies do not like to have their roots disturbed. Sow seeds outdoors in the early spring when the soil is still cool and light frost is possible. Can also be sown in the fall just before the ground freezes. Plants will tolerate poor soil.

  • Direct Seed: 1/4" Deep
  • Germination: 10-15 Days
  • Thin: 8-10" Apart
  • Light: Full Sun
