Try Thompson and Morgan and look under Somneferum papaver. Or "breadseed
poppies" those are the kind which we use the blueish seeds on our muffins
and rolls.........and no, those at the grocery store are sterile.....or ask
someone who has grown them for decades to share some seeds. I'm sure someone
out there grows them as the beautiful flowers they are, and can send you
some when the pods set their seeds. (anyone in Australia can send some if
they have them as it's winter and the pods are dry now and can be
harvested). Love the flowers. I apparently might have gotten lucky and had
the pink peony one come up in three places, but just three plants, period.
and I'm hoping for them to survive and provide me with triple the flowers
next year. These are the kind my grandmammy grew.
good luck finding a source.
actually, I have successfully grown opium poppies from the spice rack poppy
seed jar. Maybe they irradiate them or something, but plenty still
germinated. However, the poppies were mostly single, and dull colored IMO-
(pinkish lavendar and such). Large single blossoms, not the desired peony
