Show your Canadian pride by planting Canada Mix poppy seeds for a flush of red and white cheer from June to September. This mix looks so nice in large plantings, and it will fill by self sowing over time. Papaver rhoeas is a hardy annual that thrives in Zones 3-9, in practically any garden soil. Sow the seeds in early spring, while there is still a risk of frost, and repeat twice at six week intervals. This will produce a much longer bloom time than from a single sowing. Otherwise, sow them in the fall, once nights are getting cold, and they will bloom the following summer. These poppies are very easy to grow, and they’ll reach a knee-high height of 40-60cm (15-25″).
In honour of Canada’s 150th year of confederation, we ask that you help to make this country an even better place. Fifty cents from the sale of any size of the Canada Mix poppy will be donated to Make-A-Wish®, to help enrich the lives of young Canadians faced with life-threatening medical conditions.
