Pepperbox poppy

Posted by on Jun 22, 2014 in Uncategorized

With the success of my Iceland poppies in the early spring, I decided to plant some leftover Pepperbox poppy seeds in the field a couple months ago.  Their blooms are incredible so imagine my disappointment when upon picking them the petals all fell off!  After just a tad bit of research I discovered that the variety isn’t used for its flower but for its pod, luckily my blunder turned into a blessing…..the pods are really unique!Pepperbox poppy Pepperbox poppy 2 Pepperbox poppy 3 Pepperbox poppy 4
