63 – 84 days to full bloom. American Legion corn poppies are one of the most cherished and vibrant blooms in the world. American Legion seeds grow generous 3 – 4” classic red poppy blooms and are ideal with wildflower mixes and wide open spaces. American Legion corn poppies can be broadcast directly in the garden just like wildflowers yet compact enough to keep indoors for planters, baskets, and window boxes. American Legion corn poppies are native to European meadows and were recognized after WWI as the symbolic flower for fallen soldiers.
Package contains 1 gram, approximately 700 American Legion Corn Poppy Seeds.
American Legion corn poppy seeds are frost tolerant and can be sown directly outdoors in either late fall or early spring. Corn poppy seeds have a wildflower growth habit and can be broadcasted similarly. Blend 1 part corn poppy seed to 5 parts sand to increase visibility during sowing and lightly rake and tamp. For earliest spring blooms, begin corn poppy seeds indoors 6 – 8 weeks prior and transplant to either indoors or out. Germination: 20 to 28 days Plant 2-3 seeds 1/4" deep or broadcast directly. Spacing should be 6 to 12 inches with 12 inches between rows.
