Papaver rhoeas ‘Mother of Pearl’
This is the strain that the Welsh artist Cedric Morris developed in his Suffolk garden ‘Benton End’. A mixture of soft smoky colours, grey, lilac, mauve, pink, soft orange and white. Many of the poppies are flecked and there are some picotees. This is one of the most subtle blends of poppies available.
