Corn Poppy


Corn Poppy | Ecologically grown
Papaver rhoeas | Annual | Heirloom

Symbol of Remembrance Day and this red poppy is immortalized in the wartime poem “In Flanders Fields”. Seeds are used extensively for cooking purposes. In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie, In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

Planting tip: Poppies are started outdoors in early spring even when there is still a chance of frost. Transplant not recommended.
