Black Peony poppies showcase the most profound purple blossoms attainable, boasting fully double, densely arranged petals that create a remarkably striking appearance. With their dramatic, peony-like form, these flowers grace the garden for a single day, yet their captivating presence spans from July to September. These blooms can expand to an impressive diameter of 10cm (4″). While their petals are short-lived, the dried seed heads make a valuable addition to dried flower arrangements, and the edible seeds they produce can be a delightful inclusion in baking endeavors. Beyond their ornamental and culinary appeal, Black Peony poppies hold the power to attract bees due to their irresistible charm and stand resilient against the grazing of deer. With an expected height of around 90cm (36″), these poppies stand as a testament to the intricate beauty and versatility that can be found in the plant kingdom.
