Item details


Bloom: Spring- Fall

These dark darlings have been homegrown in my grandma's yard without chemicals or pesticides!

Yep they're heirloom!
The darkest of the dark, the blackest of the black, and poofiest of the poofs- The black peony poppy brings a deep dash of color to any arrangement or patch! Heavily ruffled flowers are truly amazing and range from deep purple (image 3) to burgundy black. Double flowers bloom in pairs to cover the plant in curious black puffs!
Poppies are fragrant, gorgeous, and tolerate even the driest and hottest of conditions.
These poppies are an interesting perennial flower in that while they are native to California and other southwestern areas, they will overwinter in cooler gardens. Or, to be more precise, if happy in their garden setting they will self-sow.
Each delicate flower will grow approximately 12-18 inches tall and the flowers are roughly 2 inches across. Blossoms will open in the late afternoon to perfume your garden with their intoxicating aroma!
Poppy seed pods (image 5)are gorgeous in arrangements and offer their otherworldly and everlasting shapes to all sorts of bouquets. To harvest pods, wait until the flower seed pod has full dried after the flower petals have fallen off. Carefully cut the stem of the pod, careful not to spill any of the seeds. Empty the seeds in a container for replaying and keep the pod for decorative use! It makes a great magic wand for all your kids!

Each hand designed and child decorated packet contains at least 15 organic homegrown seeds! Each seed packet features it's own special image drawn by our residential little artists! We do not use pesticides or chemicals in our garden!

Shipping costs cover the base shipping and the handling- this includes production of seed packets, seed harvesting, and preservation. We also isolate plants to ensure strain purity and harvest, dry, and clean each seed pod by hand! All the best, because we care!

Our local little artists are hard at work imagining and designing great images for our packets and our grown-ups here cut, pack, harvest, and do just about everything by hand, please take consideration of our small efforts to ensure love in every sprout!
