Ladybird Poppy produces bright, fire engine red blooms with conspicuous black blotches which look very much like a ladybird. These poppies are ideal for sowing direct into borders to create drifts of colour and will grow to an approximate height of 40cm (16″).
When to sow
March to June
WHERE TO SOW
Direct into weed free flowering site 1cm (1/2″) deep.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Poppies do not like being transplanted so thin seedlings out.
June to September
Sow in drifts so that flowers sway in the gentle summer breeze.
