PAPAVER NUDICAULE - COLIBRI ROSA INTENSO SALMONATO

Giant rosy, coral salmon poppy!

Colibri poppies are Italian bred, supersized Iceland Poppies (Papaver nudicaule). As their flowers are larger they don't produce as many stems per plant as regular sized Iceland Poppies, but they absolutely make up for it with the largest, most unbelievable sized flowers in the prettiest colours!

If harvesting for cut-flowers, Colibri's need to be harvested a touch later than regular poppies 'split bud' stage, they pop open post-harvest more reliably if you wait a little longer until their pods have fully come off from the stem base.

See our Top 5 Tips for Better Seed Germination post for our best germination tricks for light lovers like poppies.
