(P. somniferum) A graceful and gorgeous poppy from Hungary, beloved for its tasty seeds. This edible bread seed poppy produces dazzling purple petals that give way to large seed filled pods. The pods are excellent for arranging, adding unique form to designs. The seeds are a light blue color with nutty flavor. An annual that easily self sows, we love to plant this poppy in drifts, creating a swaying sea of purple color. Many Hungarian recipes call for poppy seeds, from fillings for rolls and breads there is even a traditional noodle dish with ground poppy seed topping.
