Valeria Dukelow donated this gorgeous poppy to Seed Savers Exchange in 2012. Valeria has grown it in Pittsburgh since the 1960s. She obtained the seeds from her mother, saying “Sarah Russ Chima was born April 28, 1902 in Copacel, Fagaras, Romania. Mother came to [the] U.S. when she was in her teens. I imagine she received the poppy seeds by mail from her mother Maria who remained in Romania.”
