1 x PAPAVER orientale Pizzicato - 9cm Pot


Oriental Poppies provide a cheerful display of huge, satiny flowers in late spring and early summer. Plants form a low clump of coarse, hairy leaves, and usually go dormant, disappearing completely by late summer. This compact-growing strain features flowers in shades of white, pink, salmon and scarlet.

Because they disappear in summer, place something beside Oriental Poppies that will get bushy later in the season, such as Rudbeckia, Russian Sage, or fall-flowering grasses. Divide in August to September. Use for cutting just as the buds begin to open.

Height 60-70cm
Spread 45-60cm
