Kent Wildflower Seeds - Corn Poppy (Papaver rhoeas)


Common corn poppies are one of Britain's most treasured and celebrated wildflowers, symbolising remembrance and renewal. From June to August, the familiar saucer-shaped scarlet blooms bring a splash of colour to areas of naturalised planting. Corn poppies will bloom just a few months after germination, providing a buffet of nectar for bees and butterflies. If left to set seed, you can expect them to self-seed and return the following year.
