Show your Canadian pride with Canada Mix poppy seeds from West Coast Seeds. This mix offers a stunning display of bright red and white flowers, blooming from June to September. Perfect for large plantings, these hardy annuals will self-sow over time, ensuring your garden remains vibrant year after year. Papaver rhoeas thrives in Zones 3-9 and can flourish in practically any garden soil. Sow seeds in early spring, while frost is still a risk, and repeat twice at six-week intervals for an extended bloom period. Alternatively, sow in the fall for blooms the following summer. These easy-to-grow poppies will reach a knee-high height of 40-60cm (15-25").

Key Features:

  • Bright Red and White Flowers: Showcases Canadian pride with vibrant blooms.
  • Hardy Annual: Thrives in Zones 3-9.
  • Self-Sowing: Ensures continuous blooms year after year.
  • Height: Reaches 40-60cm (15-25").
  • Easy to Grow: Perfect for both novice and experienced gardeners.

Growing Instructions:

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Season & Zone:
    • Exposure: Full sun to partial shade
    • Zone: Hardy to Zone 3

Timing:

Start perennial poppies outdoors in early spring, when frost is still possible. Start annual varieties outdoors at the same time in Zones 3-7. In Zones 8-10, direct sow in the fall. Poppies are difficult to transplant, so starting indoors is not recommended. If necessary, use peat or coir pots and maintain a soil temperature of 12°C (55°F). Seeds will sprout in 20-30 days.

Starting:

Sow on the surface of the soil, or barely cover seeds. Thin to a minimum of 15cm (6") apart.

Growing:

Poppies are easy to grow and self-sow abundantly without becoming weedy. Pull up unwanted plants before they bloom, or let them grow where they thrive. They will flourish in surprising spots like cracks in the driveway. Keep them moderately watered in hot, dry weather, and do not fertilize.

For the largest heads on Papaver somniferum, sow seeds in the fall or early winter. Thin plants to allow space, and keep the area weeded as plants grow. Grow this variety in full sun in well-drained, ordinary garden soil. If spring and summer are cool and damp, or plants are overcrowded, expect smaller seed heads.

Elevate your garden with the vibrant, self-sowing Canada Mix poppies from West Coast Seeds. Perfect for adding a touch of Canadian pride to any landscape, these poppies are easy to grow and thrive in various conditions.
