When you think of wild flower meadows the traditional corn poppy is often thought of. Whilst this isn't a Papaver somniferum species itself you can easily create a similar scene by utilizing the somniferum variety Bright Red in your planting scheme. Meanwhile, to create a wild flower meadow with a difference, you can use a range of the Papaver somniferum colors available including whites, purples and pinks.
The first year of your wild flower meadow you'll have to sow plants yourself, a method which may not give as natural design as you'd wish. However, by scattering seeds across the meadow and allowing them to germinate naturally, you can get the best effect possible. In consequent years specimens of poppies will sow themselves, allowing for a truly natural planting scheme to form.
Creating a wild flower meadow is a great way to use a space in your garden that can be carefully maintained to look as natural as possible. And by using Papaver somniferum varieties as part of the planting plan you will ensure beautiful color dancing amongst the rising grasses as the year progresses.
