Availability: Out of Stock

The beauty of 'Amazing Grey' is beyond compare! Crepe-paper like blooms unfurl into single and half-double blooms, each unique. Bred over 18 years from a single bloom in the Mother of Pearl poppy blend, the breeder isolated the purple-grey flowers, although you may see an occasional burgundy bloom. A practically care-free annual and a pollinator favorite, these poppies reseed making them ideal for naturalized areas. A 2018 Fleuroselect Novelty award winner. Drought tolerant and deer resistant.

I am growing these for a wedding next month and the first one that bloomed was red!!!! Really hoping the rest will be the right color or we might be pruning these the day of the wedding.....red is not in the color scheme!!! :'( But still a beautiful bloom none the less. :)

Owner Response: Christina, an occasional red or burgundy bloom is to be expected from this variety as it was selected from a parent mix that contains red blooming poppies. You can cull the red blooming plants before they go to seed to avoid them reseeding.

Not true to picture

Like others have mentioned, my poppy flowers are not as pictured. I have some very pretty pink to magenta poppies instead! However, this issue is from Botanical Interests. Due to a low germination rate, I also bought some seedlings from a nursery. So far, those flowers are bright red! If you look up photos of this variety, there is a lot of variation (though so far I have no purple or lilac colors). I have had much better luck with the single black poppy varieties.
