    Papaver somniferum 
    'Izmir Afghan Special' (Galania)

    [PURE SEED*]

    Original obtained from the Izmir Farm website that seems to have bitten the dust, he is supposed to have received directly from Afghanistan, very nice genuine Afghan poppy, good plants will reach 3-4ft in height, but mine only ever reach 2,5ft because of the short sowing to flower window that I have. The large pink and white flowers, followed by large barrel shaped pods, seeds need to be in the ground early as later sowing will bolt, high yield, a top-quality poppy, white seeds.These poppies always produce less seeds than any other poppy, hence the higher price, I always sell out before I have a new batch to sell, so if you what these seeds get them early.

    Seeds need to be sown early to do well, as they will bolt if sown too late in the summer!


    [Notes: Galania: Height 4 feet or less, flowers white with pink or dark pink border, size of capsule 3” x 2”, and round, oblong and flattened a little on top, colour of capsule dark green, low seed production.]
