The crepe-paper like blooms on ‘Amazing Grey’ unfurl into single and half-double blooms, each unique. Bred over 18 years from a single bloom in the Mother of Pearl poppy blend, the breeder isolated the purple-grey flowers, although you may see an occasional burgundy bloom. A practically care-free annual and a pollinator favorite, these poppies reseed making them ideal for naturalized areas. Drought tolerant and deer resistant. Plants grow up to 15″-27″ tall, 12″ wide, and produce flowers that bloom from spring to summer. Prefers full sun exposure. Botanical Interests’® Amazing Grey Corn Poppy Seeds have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.
Outdoors: Sow 4-6 weeks before your average last frost date, or as soon as soil can be worked; or fall for bloom the following spring. In mild climates, fall sowing is recommended.
Indoors: Not recommended, as it does not transplant well.
