Love it! They actually banned the sale of these where I live! Shame, I think they are beautiful.

I'd definitely be saving some of the seeds from this one ! It's so unique.

Why the ban Gillian? Are they considered invasive or is it the seeds?

I guess it's because they are the opium poppy family Grammazoo. Don't tell anyone but we've just found some wild Cannabis growing in our garden too.
