How to Grow the Common Poppies (Papaver rhoeas)

The poppies (Papaver rhoeas) is an annual wildflower with showy red flowers. Poppies seeds can rest and germinate for up to 80 years after the soil has been removed. This led to it being coined as a symbol of remembrance after World War I, when poppy flames raged on restless battlefields. The infamous poem In Flanders Fields, written by John McCrae, the Canadian volunteer field medic, was inspired by these poppies on the battlefield.

Common poppies flowers typically last from late spring to early summer. Although the flowers are usually scarlet, hybridization and selective breeding have resulted in several breeders with yellow, orange, pink, and even white flowers.

These poppies are almost maintenance-free when planted in their hardiness zones and are excellent for naturalization. They are also good for flower beds, country house gardens, borders, and pollinator gardens.
