Izmir India Black Poppy


An ultra-rare pure bred opium poppy, the stunning near-black deep purple petals contrast beautifully against the lush blue-green foliage and pods.  Looks like no other.


These are an incredibly rare poppy which we haven’t grown for five years, we wanted to wait until we had enough indoor growing space to grow a decent crop as it’s important to prevent cross-pollination to keep the strain pure and thereby retain the stunning qualities of this enigmatic Papaver Somniferum.

These really look like no other poppy; it’s really difficult to accurately portray what they look like when photographing them as, to the eye, they really do look black! It’s kind of a trick of the eye as they are actually a very deep purple, as can be seen in the photos.

The petals tend last a good few days longer than most Somniferum varieties and the pod begins growing while still concealed by the mass of near-black petals. Once the petals fall off, the resulting pods are a good size, with a generous number of flowes/pods per plant.

If you want to grow a type of opium poppy which, to the untrained eye, really doesn’t look like an opium poppy, then this is the one to go for!

Stocks of these are limited.
