About Poppy 'Black Peony'
Papaver somniferum, known as the opium poppy, is a striking plant characterized by its fuzzy, blue-green leaves and lavish, ostentatious blooms that grace the summer. The blossoms, available in both single and double forms, showcase a diverse palette of colors such as purple, mauve, white, and red. While each individual flower has a fleeting existence, it is succeeded by others, each yielding a substantial and equally appealing seed head. When provided with optimal conditions, Papaver somniferum is prolific in self-seeding.
