Papaver rhoeas is known by many other names, including corn poppy, Flanders poppy and Shirley poppy. It is a red, four-petaled, annual flower with a black center whose blooms typically begin in late spring. The flowers and seeds are edible and the plant is used medicinally for a variety of purposes. Similar to the peony, the corn poppy is a symbol of agricultural fertility. It is also a military symbol for veterans of World War I who fought in fields populated by the flower.

Growing Information
These seeds are easily grown outdoors in full sun by scattering the seeds on the surface of the soil and pressing them in. Some growers actually prefer to mix the seeds with a loose, fine soil or sand and then scatter the mix. Sow the seeds in early spring or in the fall if your bed is prepared before the winter. Sowing in the fall may not work if the winters are especially cold. Seeds sown in the fall will germinate the following spring when the temperatures are right. An early start is important because the seeds will germinate best at temperatures of about 60 degree Fahrenheit. Transplanting is not recommended unless it can be done carefully without disturbing the roots. Shirley poppies are considered to be particularly sensitive to transplanting. A light, well-draining soil is important. A mix of compost, sand, peat moss and vermiculite will work. Add lime if the soil is acidic. Keep well-watered, particularly until the plants are established. Fertilize monthly with a high-phosphorous fertilizer.
