Poppy 'Ladybird' (Large Plant)

Papaver commutatum

Hardy Annual

Hardy annual Poppy 'Ladybird' was developed from a species introduced from Russia in 1876 by our founder, William Thompson - and is still as popular as ever! Brilliant scarlet red petals are set off beautifully by the contrasting black spots at the base of each petal. Although each bloom last only a few days, more fat, hairy buds are constantly rising from among the clumps of finely cut foliage. This fabulous Caucasian Scarlet Poppy is so easy to grow and holds an RHS AGM for its superb garden performance. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 15cm (6").
