A very attractive poppy with shining crimson single blooms with a black centre on each petal which resembles a ladybird's spots. Poppies are always more dramatic when planted in mass, a must for every spring garden. Self-sows freely.

Cold: Late summer and early autumn.

Sow: 2-3mm deep, cover lightly and gently firm.
For best results sow directly into the soil where they are to grow. If grown early indoors use a growing container that can be planted directly into the soil such as jiffy pots as seedlings do not like root disturbance.

Plant space: 20-30cm
Flowering: 20 weeks

Feed with a soluble fertiliser every two weeks for stronger plants.
