Heirloom Mixed Oriental Poppy Seeds (20) Papaver Orientale 

These huge, glowing orange-red blooms are popular in flower gardens worldwide. This perennial is quite hardy and often spreads by self-sowing. It is also well-liked by the bees and butterflies.

In the early 1700s, French botanist Joseph Pitton de Tournefort and several colleagues made a research expedition to the many Mediterranean and Middle Eastern countries. His travels eventually took him to Turkey, where he traveled through the mountains with a large caravan. His botanical notes show that he found and collected seeds from this plant during this part of the journey. The genus name "Papaver" comes from the Latin word for "milk," referring to the white sap in the stem. The species name "orientale" refers to the plant's place of origin.
