Availability: In Stock
'Black Swan' is too gorgeous to tuck away into a collage of other flowers, with its intricate, finely cut petals as dark as cabernet. Sow it along a path you frequent or in a large container where you can admire its richly colored 3"–5" semi-double blossoms on graceful, curved, swan-like necks, while bees savor the nectar. Harvest them for exquisite bouquets.

This is one of the most spectacularly beautiful poppies I have ever seen, grows very tall and lives up to its name as it waves in the breeze. It has tons of seeds in the pod once done blooming which I have shared with others.

These flowers are dramatic and dark. Just beautiful! I collected the seeds and made Black Swan Poppyseed Muffins. The dried stalks are also great for bouquets.

Pretty but not Black Swan...

These were the only Poppy Seeds I have ever planted so what bloomed was definitely from the seeds I bought. They are pretty but now Black Swan Poppy that I purchased. Big mix up in packaging. What I got was a very light pink and a random dark red single petal poppies.

The Black Swan Poppies are show-stopping gorgeous and so unique. I've planted these for 2 years and will be planting more this year. In 2021 I combined these with larkspur, white cosmos, and sunflowers and it was a very pretty combination. I've had excellent germination rates and always direct sow the seeds in early spring. It's too bad there's no way for me to attach pictures to this review because I have some beautiful pics!

It came up but never thrived and I saw very little growth and no flowers.

Owner Response: Hi Carol, Thank you for sharing your experience. It sounds like the seeds performed well, as expected, but some growing conditions could be improved. Some reasons plants will stay stunted are cramped growing conditions (not thinned or too small of a container), transplant shock (poppies do not transplant well), not enough sun (these need 6 or more hours a day), lean conditions (little water or nutrients), and some other environmental conditions we are happy to help you troubleshoot. Please don't hesitate to contact us at the first sign of problems and we are happy to help troubleshoot growing conditions.
