Poppy 'Beauty of Livermere' (Large Plant)

Papaver orientale, Oriental Poppy

Hardy Perennial

Bright red blooms with black centre markings create a boisterous display that will certainly grab the limelight! The solitary papery blooms of Poppy 'Beauty of Livermere' perch on slender, hairy stems that sway above neat clumps of downy foliage. Although the flowers are relatively short-lived, this hardy Oriental Poppy brings late summer interest to borders with its large pepper pot seedheads. This well known variety is a must have for cottage garden borders and wildlife areas where it will attract plenty of pollinating insects. Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 60cm (24").
