Oriental Poppies provide a cheerful display of huge, satiny flowers in late spring and early summer.
They form low a low mound of coarse, hairy leaves, and usually go dormant, disappearing completely by late summer. This selection features frilly, raspberry pink, cup-shaped flowers splotched with black. Because they disappear in summer, plant something beside Oriental Poppies that will get bushy later in the season.
Divide in August/September.
Excellent for cutting, when picked just as the buds open.
