Beautiful Blue Poppies with big blooms! Perennials Too! Free shipping.
Magnificent performer for cooler summer climates. Blue Poppy perennials prefer a cool, moist, shady place to grow unlike traditional poppies. Provide the conditions they require to thrive and they will keep coming back year after year in your gardens. Himalayan Blue Poppies have large delicate petals held in a cup shape. The flowers can range in a wide variety of many shades of blue depending on your soil. Alkaline soils produce more violet shades of blue even in cultivars which would normally be a pale blue. Like with Hydrangea, you can adjust your color by adjusting the pH of your soil. I send 30 seeds and bonus seeds. All the Blue Poppy variations are herbaceous and very cold hardy, although they may rot in soil that is too wet. These are considered harder to grow that my other poppy seeds that can be tossed on the ground. Soil should be kept aerated so it does not remain saturated and your Himalayan Poppies should do well. To see full growing directions for BLUE POPPIES please see info on my ALL ABOUT POPPIES page. And in Gardening Blog for the growing all of other poppies.
