Poppy - Blackcurrant Fizz
Another beautiful variety from Thompson & Morgan! Distinctive, serrated blooms in an unusually deep, burgundy shade, amazingly appear black when glistening in the summer sun, as they sit proudly above glaucous foliage. Easy-to-grow and will add drifts of colour to summer borders. The seed pods that follow flowering are also very attractive and will add interest to flower arrangements at the end of summer. Height: 90-100cm (36-40in).
Sow thinly just below the surface in well- cultivated soil which has been raked to a fine tilth.
When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to 15-3cm (6-12in) apart.
Removing spent flower heads will encourage further blooming.
