Poppy ‘Sissinghurst White’ comes to us from Sissinghurst Castle which is located south of London in the Weald of Kent. Although known mainly for the extravagant rose gardens, this castle was home to a writer by the name of Vita Sackville-West. In the winter of 1950, she sowed plants for the “white garden” in which only plants in colors of white, green. grey and silver were planted. This planting style is very similar to the modern ‘moon gardens’ seen today worldwide. ‘Sissinghurst White’ poppies are an English heirloom poppy that was planted in this famous garden.
