Poppy 'Blue Moon' is a rare and enchanting heirloom variety with delicate, white petals adorned with a touch of lavender and violet at their center. These unique blooms add a touch of ethereal beauty to any garden, creating a captivating display as they sway gently in the breeze. While primarily grown for their ornamental value, these "Breadseed" poppies also produce edible seeds that can be used in baking and cooking.

These seeds are easy to start directly in the garden after the last frost. Scatter them on top of the soil and gently rake them in. Poppies prefer full sun and well-draining soil. Thin the seedlings to about 6-12 inches apart once they have a few sets of true leaves. Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during dry spells, and deadhead spent blooms to encourage continuous flowering throughout the summer. If you're looking to harvest seed pods for baking or future plantings, leave a few blooms to mature and dry on the plant.
