A stylish Oriental Poppy boasting ruffled pink blooms with a gentle grey tint. The satiny petals are marked with contrasting black blotches at the base of each petal, that surround a dark circle of stamens. Poppy ‘Manhattan’ make a spectacular addition to sunny borders, mingling beautifully with late spring perennials. As the flowers fade, the large seed heads provide interesting architecture to planting schemes.
The finely dissected leaves are cloaked in coarse hairs that give it an attractive silvery hue. By late summer the leaves have all but disappeared so this perennial is best planted among other perennials that will fill any gaps left behind. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 40cm (16").

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. The growth points of most bare root perennials should be set about an inch below the soil surface. New growth will appear in spring.
