I like the selection of seed that strictlymedicalseeds have ..
The recent purple ones are Laurens grape and yes they are somniferum. The earlier purple poppies were McCormick ..
Sorry just seen this lol.. I personally would get the pepper box and the Danish flag ,.and maybe the black swan peony .
I broadcast some seeds in a few flower beds, we'll see if any takes.
The bottom pic here maybe a pepper box.. Some are fringed some are not, the drama queen are a little more pink then red like the pepper box
Danish flag with no fringe ..
Some of the Drama Queens are absolute show stoppers.
They really are
I'm looking forward to next year now.. I should have a lot of different looking blooms with all of the cross pollination that's goin on thanks to mason bees and beetles that keep bouncing from flower to flower
Papaver S does not readily cross pollinate, not that it wont happen but its uncommon. many of the flowers even polinate before the sepals fall.
Yeah I've read that , I've also read they do.. So it's one of those things I'll find out first had.
The papaver glaucum I removed the sepals and staimens (castrated it. Lol)and manually pollinated it with drama queen pollen.. Two Japanese guys did this with p.somniferum and p.setigerum in 1944 to make pharmasudical poppies(high morphine) I have the pdf file on it if anyone would like to read it..
Lilac pom pomฯ
Not much lilac in it..lol( bottom pic)
black swan peony poppy: first one of four to bloom
Gigantimum a.k.a. the Giant:
This one's a runt..a.k.a. The Runt..lol
real nice selection this year, FF
Thanks. I'm picking up a few others for next year.
