Papaveraceae: I haven't grown this poppy since 2012, back then they bolted because I got them in too late, so I ripped them out and re-sowed the patch with another poppy. So, thought I would give them ago again this year. They are still a bit small but I should get a decent crop of seed from them. Said to grow to 3-4ft. 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.
