Poppy - 'Angel's Choir' mix*

Poppy - 'Angel's Choir' mix*


(Papaver rhoeas) 

Sometimes also known as 'Dawn Chorus': a romantic mix of opulent single, double and semi-double flowers in a range of muted pastel colours and some picotees - a divine mix of soft berry purple, cream, rose pink, salmon, apricot and lavender.

*NOTE: while I originally bought these as 'Angel's Choir' variety when they were grown at the farm there were a number of bright red and bright pink varieties in there, not only the muted pastels as promised. Just so you know, selecting these seeds will give you Angel's Choir and more! ;)
