Papaver nudicaule

Artic Poppy

Description

Usually grown as an annual, with hairy, grey-green, pinnately lobed leaves and solitary, bowl-shaped, fragrant yellow, orange, reddish or white flowers, in summer.

Harvesting seed

Wait until the seed pod turns brown on the plant and the stalks turn yellow. When openings appear below the crown of the pod cut the pods and place face down in a paper bag to dry for about 3 weeks.

Once dry, pick up the stems and tap onto the sides of a bowl to release the seeds.
