Grow these pretty, eye-catching annuals from seeds. These huge flowers with frilly, creamy, yellow balls make quite a sparkling display in the flower garden!

After the blooms are done, attractive seed pods form that make beautiful dried decorations for arrangements.

Grow Peony Poppy seeds indoors in late winter. Use peat pots and starter mix. Sow the flower seeds on the surface and press the flower seeds into the soil. Peony Poppy flower seeds need light to germinate. Keep flower seeds moist until germination. Transplant Peony Poppy seedlings outdoors after danger of frost has passed. Another option, and often preferred by many gardeners, is to directly sow the black Peony seeds outdoors. Peony Poppy flower seed can be sown in the late fall, late winter, or early spring. Prepare the soil by loosening the top several inches, spread the flower seeds and lightly rake. Firm the soil by walking lightly over the area. Thin Peony Poppy seedlings to 40cm (15 - 18 inches) apart.
