Seed Exchange - The stunning double flowers of this breadseed poppy are coral-pink and reach 2-2 ½' tall. Valeria Dukelow donated this gorgeous poppy to Seed Savers Exchange in 2012 and has grown it in her Pittsburgh garden since the 1960s, when she obtained the seeds from her Romanian-born mother. All plant parts except the seeds are toxic.
