Sir Cedric Morris was a 20th-century British artist who not only painted an array of portraits and still lifes but also practiced horticultural artistry, breeding new varieties of irises and poppies. For this poppy, he wanted to create a pastel palette of dusty pinks, muted purples, and blushed whites—all with a shell-like luster. The overall impression of a field of these poppies is that of an artist's palette, one on which the colors have been gently but unthoroughly mixed before being applied to the canvas.

Each year, Hudson Valley Seeds commissions contemporary artists from around the United States to tell the story of a particular seed variety. That art and those seeds combine to create an Art Pack, a unique celebration of the diverse stories of seeds and their stewards.
