Breadseed Poppy Seeds

Hens and Chicks breadseed poppies produce enormous single flowers over 8 in. across. Bloom color will be red or pink. The extremely showy poppies give way to large main pods (hens) surrounded by many smaller pods (chicks). The pods are striking and are popular in dried arrangements. Some even spray paint the pods to add even more interest. Plants grow up to 3 ft. tall.

Packet is ½ gram, about 1,100 seeds.
