Silky ruffled blooms in shades of burgundy and plums, streaked with grey, have made Papaver rhoeas ‘Pandora’ an exciting new release. This is the sultry, temptress sister to our other new release ‘Amazing Grey’

Amazing range of burgundy, plums and greys

Because an amazing range of rich shades are produced when burgundy, plums and greys are all blended – there are no two flowers alike on Pandora.
And we have never seen such sumptuous richness before in the beautiful world of Poppies.
It is like bucket loads of the best wines in the garden – from Merlots, Clarets and best Burgundies to silky Rose.

Trendy new release

Papaver rhoeas ‘Pandora’ is an outstanding new release.
Now no society florist would be seen dead without ‘Pandora’ included in their sumptuous bouquets. And interior decorators cant get enough of it for glossy magazine shoots.

Wow of a cut flower

So Papaver rhoeas ‘Pandora’ really is a wow as a cut flower.
And providing a steady stream of flowers through spring and summer.

Can’t kill it with an axe

But despite all glamourous trendy looks – this really is a tough old hardy, “cant kill it with an axe” sort of a plant – it is a glamourous Flanders Poppy after all.
So it is a very reliable self-seeding annual.
And once you have some garden plants to start with, then it will just continue to self-sow each year.
