Papaver ‘Sugar Plum’

20120524-114112.jpg

This amazing ‘Sugar Plum’ poppy from Annie’s Annuals is about the size of my hand and about chest-height. The other two I picked up at the SF flower show at the same time, ‘Flemish Antique’ and ‘Black Peony’ are still much shorter, about the 24-30″ height I expected. Although the description of ‘Black Peony’ says it will reach 3-4′ high as well.

I hope it really does “reseed freely”, I would love to have these all over my garden!
