Growing Ladybird Flowers

The ladybird flower is a type of poppy with bright red petals and big black splodges! It will also drop its own seeds into the ground, so you’ll see it come back year after year.

It’s a ‘hardy annual’, meaning you can sow it as late as Autumn and the seeds will survive the winter, giving you a head start on next year’s gardening and a much earlier bloom.

 

This guide will show you how to sow and care for your plant through it's lifecycle.
