DetailsPapaver Somniferum – Danish Flag Poppy Seeds. Like its smaller dwarf counterpart, Danish Flag poppy seeds offer fantastic bi-color blooms of red and white poppies. A member of the Papaver Somniferum family, this variety has intensely rich red petals which are feathered at their edges for maximum effect. At its center a pure white cross finishes the look, completing the motif for Denmark’s national flag. Growing to a height of between two and three feet, Danish Flag is a stunning variety that will certainly become the talking piece of a garden. Its five inch wide blooms look spectacular in large groups, filling any garden area with intense color. Also known as bread-seed or florist poppies, Danish Flag will reveal an additional benefit when its delicate petals fall in the form of an architectural and stunning seed head, perfect for use in flower arranging. Meanwhile, such a seed head can also be left on the plants, adding interesting winter appeal as morning dews and frosts cling to the sculptural shape. Easy to grow, Danish Flag is an annual poppy variety that will thrive in most garden settings. Producing an abundant amount of poppy seeds at the end of the season, gardeners can collect and store seed heads for planting in the fall or early spring. And with this bumper packet of poppy seeds, gardens will never be without the Danish emblem ever again.
