Danish Flag Poppy Seeds

The very hard to find Danish Flag Poppy, sometimes called called the Danebrog Poppy, is a species of Papaver Somniferum that produces stunning red and white fringed flowers. For every poppy lover, this poppy variety is sure to become a fast favorite! The Danish Flag poppy offers the fringed poppy flowers , making an incredible addition to any flower garden. The Danish Flag can grow up to four feet tall and offers blooms of red and white with a yellow center. With a foliage base similar to that of lettuce, a single stalk will rise high into the air, adding important structural height for any garden.

As an annual variety, Danish Flag Poppy is very easy to grow and will produce a multitude of seeds at the end of the season. Sowing this packet of poppy seeds in the fall or early spring will bring this huge variety to any garden, and fill it with soft blooms and rich seed heads that will enthrall throughout the seasons. Plant in the spring or fall.

These seeds are easily grown outdoors in full sun by scattering the seeds on the surface of the soil and pressing them in. Some growers actually prefer to mix the seeds with a loose, fine soil or sand and then scatter the mix. For optimal results, plant Danish Flag Poppy seeds between September and April. Sowing in the fall may not work if the winters are especially cold. Seeds sown in the fall will germinate the following spring when the temperatures are right. An early start is important because the seeds will germinate best at temperatures of about 60 degree Fahrenheit. Transplanting is not recommended unless it can be done carefully without disturbing the roots.
