Poppies Add Colour
Descendants of these poppies have been in our north garden for around 80 years. Each year they seed themselves and we weed and plant around them. The colour was originally a plain red but over the years we have counted at least 10 different variations in colour that have developed, including white, white with red edging and a light purple. This mutation occured naturally. In the picture you can see a red flower with white edging and different shades of red.
