  • (P. somniferum) Extraterrestrial and out of this world! The Hen and Chicks poppy is highly coveted by fine florists who use the unusual seed heads in arrangements. Named for its unusual habit of forming small clusters of smaller seed pods in a halo shape around the main seed pod, like a momma hen and her chicks. The fresh flowers are gorgeous in their own right, with silky pink petals splashed with purple. As the petals fall, the strikingly unusual form of the seed pods is fully revealed! Plants stand 2.5 to 3 feet tall on long slender stems, excellent for cutting and drying. Annual that easily self sows.
  • The somniferum poppy is prized for the amount of seed produced by individual pods, suitable for baking and making oils.
  • However, this Poppy's culinary uses are overshadowed by the spectacular blooms it produces!
  • The bloom itself flaunts large, paper thin lilac petals with dark purple center spots that will glow with color in sunlight.
