description for "Poppies: Papaver rhoeas 'Angels' Choir Mixed'"

This award-winning combination of silken-petaled, double poppies features shimmering watercolor shades including cream, apricot, peach, coral, lavender, pink and bicolors and picotees. It took breeders years of selection to develop these absolutely magical forms and lustrous soft colors. 'Angels' Choir Mixed' corn poppies are exquisite in the garden as the blossoms sway gracefully on nodding 3-foot tall stems above frothy gray-green foliage. These easy-to-grow and irresistible flowers are the perfect way to welcome the joys of spring. Plant as early as possible in spring, as corn poppies can handle frost and bloom best and longest when plants get a good start in cool weather. In mild winter climates, sow seed in late autumn to overwinter for spring bloom. Weed and water young seedlings carefully. Mature plants can handle dry conditions but appreciate regular water in hot summer locations. Corn poppies make good cut flowers if cut just as buds begin to open. Allow spent flowers to form pods and drop seed if you want flowers to self-sow for next season. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
