The Peony Poppy, with its pale rose, double blooms, is a stunning heirloom flower that adds a touch of old-world charm to any garden. The large, ruffled petals create a luxurious display reminiscent of peonies, hence the name. Ideal for cut flower arrangements, this poppy is a garden gift that keeps on giving, gracing your landscape with delicate beauty.

Sow peony seeds indoors in late winter. Use peat pots and starter mix. Sow 4-5 seeds per plant on the surface and press the seeds into the soil. These particular type of seeds need light to germinate. Keep flower seeds moist until germination. Another option, and often preferred by many gardeners, is to direct sow the seeds outdoors. The flower seed can be sown in the late fall, late winter, or early spring. Prepare the soil by loosening the top several inches, spread the flower seeds and lightly rake. Firm the soil by walking lightly over the area. Thin the small seedlings to 15 - 18 inches apart. Peony plants perform best in areas where summers are cool or dry. They are not a good choice for humid regions.
