    Papaver somniferum 

    'Kykeon Indian White'

    Papaveraceae: This poppy came from the same source as the Indian white ‘Raja’. The seeds of this poppy have been sitting in a bag since 2010, simply marked, ‘Gift’, and are probably ‘Raja’, but because they had no name I have claimed them as my own. Pure white flowers, that are mostly frilly, and only one flower per plant, these are followed by barrel shaped pods.

    Like all Indian poppies that I have grown, they never grow very large for me, the tallest this year has only reached 12”. Indian whites need to be sown in late summer/autumn, and need a mild winter to slowly establish its self before spring. Good plants are said to reach 3-4ft in height, and are always the earliest P. somniferum to flower.

    Due to issues with PayPal, if you are purchasing poppy seeds can you please use card payment or cash. Thank you.
