DescriptionThe pods of White Prickly Poppy (above) produce a seed that is very
tasty for turkey, dove & quail!
Prickly Poppy is certainly an apt name for this lovely flower. They
are easy to grow, and attract nectar and pollen gathering insects.
In fact, you are almost sure to see a bee of some kind when you
look into one of these large, frilly white blooms. Plant Prickly
Poppies where you can enjoy them from a distance, as they really
are prickly! Bottom left photo of seedling had golden lighting from
sunrise and threw off the color a bit, foliage is more of a
blue-green color and leaves somewhat resemble fresh swiss chard
with white ribs running down the veins.
