Papaver rupifragum var. atlanticum (Double Moroccan Poppy) [30 Seeds]


Germination Information: Scatter (surface sow) the seeds outdoors, in pots or right where you want them to grow, in late fall to early summer. (I had great results “winter sowing” them in milk jugs; seeds sown on January 7 started sprouting on April 5. Your experience may vary.) You could also try starting them indoors in pots in late winter to mid spring. Seeds that germinate in spring produce plants that are likely to flower their first year; summer-sprouting seeds probably won’t start blooming until the next year.

Moroccan poppy (Papaver ruprifragum var. atlanticum) was a new for me in 2022, and it exceeded my expectations, with months of flowers even on the first-year plants. The cupped orange blooms were most abundant in early to midsummer the first year, with scattered single to semi-double flowers appearing even into October, atop slender, 18- to 24-inch-tall stems over low rosettes of hairy, blue-green leaves. The second-year plants started flowering in mid spring, mostly with double flowers, which indicates that these seeds may actually be the strain known as ‘Tangerine Gem’. Moroccan poppy tends to self-sow and has a lovely habit of popping up in unexpected places to add spots of eye-catching color. Best in full sun; average to dry soil. Zones 5 to 9.

Collected in early June 2023. At least 30 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
