Papaver 'Black Peony'

Plant details

This annual poppy is just the thing for gardeners in pursuit of an easy-to-grow plant with dark flowers. It has fascinating, large, fully double flowers in deepest red to black, with lovely crinkled petals. 'Black Paeony' is superb in the flower border where it can be left to self-seed quite freely.
