Plum poppies!


all photos, Dan Ryan

My purple "Patty's Plum" poppies are in bloom! These oriental poppy blossoms sit atop long wiry stems and only grace us with their presence for a short week or so each year. Their dusty lavender skirts—like crinkled, ruffly satin dresses the day after the prom—have a big dollop of blackberry jelly in the center. Deliciousness!

  1. I am wondering if you have any seeds from this poppy. I have been wanting to grow this for a long time and can not find any seeds. Thanks!
