The Danish Flag Poppy boasts striking ruffled red petals accented with a central white cross, reminiscent of the Danish national flag. This heirloom poppy variety adds a dramatic splash of color to any garden setting. An excellent choice for borders, mass plantings, or as a stand-alone specimen, its vibrant blooms are sure to captivate and delight.

Plant Danish flag poppies directly outdoors when soil is 50-65°F, either in fall or early spring. Due to their fragile roots, avoid starting indoors. Sow seeds 1/16" deep, spaced 8-12 inches apart or scatter and thin after germination. Keep the soil moist until they sprout.
