This dark red poppy has shiny black spots on each petal. It fits in perfectly with the blue of Nigella and cornflower, but also the white of candytuft. It makes an excellent bee pasture. Height reaches 50 cm.

Broadcast into the field from mid-March to late May. Only slightly cover seeds with soil. Since seeds are very fine, you can mix them with sand to give even distribution while broadcast seeding. Germination time takes one to two weeks. This poppy loves a sunny site and nutrient-rich soil.
