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 next to the Oriental Poppies that will get bushy later in the season when it goes dormant.
Divide in August/September.
Excellent for cutting, when picked just as the buds open.
