Hens and Chicks Breadseed Poppy Seeds

Hens and Chicks Breadseed Poppies are that classic, tissue-paper poppy with red and purple petals, but their real focal point is their ornate seed pods: a primary seed surrounded my dozens of tiny seeds. A stem of Hens and Chicks adds texture and interest to any bouquet.

Poppies are the darlings of the Plantgem family. Always in style, unique and easy to grow, they will happily set seed to come back subsequent years.

Includes 100 seeds.
