Product Overview

Papaver rhoeas

A symbol of wartime sacrifice, the Flanders poppy is grown for remembrance and its striking beauty. A lovely cut flower.

John McCrae, a Canadian physician and soldier who served in World War I, immortalized the Flanders poppy, also known as corn poppy. His poem, "In Flanders Fields" spoke of these red poppies as reminders of those who had lost their lives in war. Scatter them in early spring or fall for your own personal memorial, or simply enjoy them for their glorious beauty.
