Emil’s Scarlet Red Peony Poppy - (Papavera somniferum) These poppy seeds originated from the gardens of Evelyn Wilkinson of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Emil initially collected seeds in the late 1990’s. He has selected a very deep red strain from these heirloom poppies and continually regrown it since. A dark red Peony-like head that resembles a geranium from a distance or at first glance. We are excited to offer seeds of this rare family heirloom for the first time in 2024!
