With bright red, super frilled flowers. Each with a white cross and contrasting golden yellow stamens, Poppy ‘Danish Flag’ is certain to stand out in your summer displays. These easy to grow hardy annuals look great planted in drifts or in a cut flower arrangement. Don’t forget that the seed heads also look great too.

  • Seeds can be sown from late summer to late April.
  • Prefers recently disturbed soil with good drainage.
  • The species does not transplant well so scatter the seeds sparingly and cover with a very fine layer of earth (rake in).
  • Water well until germination, keeping the earth moist.
  • The young seedlings grow fast and look like baby lettuce to start with.
  • This variety does need space to grow, ideally about 30cm apart, but they will thrive on less if well watered, so thin well to at least 15cm between each plant.
  • Dead head to encourage further flowering.
  • Cut the heads once mature and hang to dry or leave to re-seed
