Peshawar Poppy (Papaver somniferum var. album) is a gorgeous spring bloomer. Native to southeastern Europe and western Asia, and is widely recognized for its showy white blossoms that give way to giant, heavy yielding seedpods. A standout in the garden, the large white flowers are very attractive to bees and other beneficial flying insects. We’ve had great success finely direct seeding rows in early spring after frost danger has passed. We’ve also had moderate success starting seeds in cells and later transplanting them.
75 days from seed to flower. Annual.
Grown at Mano Farm in Ojai, California.
