Peony Black

Peony Poppy (Papaver Paeoniflorum Black) - Grown from seeds, this black variety has huge, velvety, double blooms of dark maroon which are 4 - 5 inches across. This plant has blooms so dark in color that they appear to be black. Black peony poppy flowers are beautiful and unique with tightly packed ruffled, whorled petals that glow in the summer sun! These annual flowers will brighten up any garden, and when they are done blooming, attractive seed pods follow the blooms. The seed pods are very nice for dried arrangements. These plants reach 32 - 40 inches in height, and they spread 12 inches wide.

Grow seeds indoors in late winter. Use peat pots and starter mix. Sow the flower seeds on the surface and press the flower seeds into the soil. These seeds need light to germinate. Keep flower seeds moist until germination. Transplant seedlings outdoors after danger of frost has passed. Another option, and often preferred by many gardeners, is to directly sow the seeds outdoors. Peony seeds 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 seedlings to 15 - 18 inches apart.
