This award winning peony-type poppy has unusual frilly blooms that are approximately 10-12cm wide. The large flowers are a feathery bright scarlet and are fully double. An ideal bedding plant that is virtually maintenance free. The plants have an unusual curly stem and the green seed pods are suitable for cutting for use in dried flower arrangements. Poppies are always more dramatic when planted in mass, a must for every spring garden. Self-sows freely.

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