I am 100% satisfied. 24 hours or less from finding your website to delivery! Thank you to all concerned!

Papaver somniferum (Paeoniiflorum Group) 'Black Beauty'

  • This almost black, fully double Poppy is absolutely stunning.
  • Grow en masse or as a small clump planting to make a truly dazzling display.
  • Hardy annual.

Supplied as compost block-grown plants.

Available from APPROXIMATELY May 2021

Qty:
Pollinator Friendly

Stunningly beautiful. Near black fully double flowers rise on tall stems. And after the flower the seed heads form which look similarly wonderful.

As a cut flower they will last at best 24 hours - so unless it's a really special occasion this is a flower to enjoy in the garden! The seed pods will, of course, last indefinitely so can be used in dried flower arrangements.

Plant en masse for a truly stunning display.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Flowers June - August.
  • Grows to around 2-3 feet (60 - 90 cm) tall.
  • Plant 14" apart.
  • Thrives in full sun.
  • Prefers well drained soils - is particularly good on poorer soils.
  • Hardy annual though can prove tender in very wet winters.
  • Provided they are grown away from other poppies they will set seed quite true to type.

Please Note
Cultivation of Papaver somniferum is legal in the UK - the harvesting and processing of it for the production of drugs, legal or otherwise, is not!
