Description

These flamboyant Oriental poppies will light up your borders in late spring and early summer. They thrive in full sun and are happy in poor, dry soil. These clump forming perennials creating neat rosettes of deeply-cut leaves covered with coarse hairs, bringing fabulous texture to borders, even before the blooms appear. Their large satiny flowers provide a splash of colour in summer, followed by attractive rounded seed heads. Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 60cm (24").

  • Collection comprises:
  • Papaver orientale 'Beauty of Livermere' - Bright red blooms with black centre markings create a boisterous display.
  • Papaver orientale ‘Royal Wedding' - Glistening white petals and a dark centre to each bloom followed by attractive seed heads.
  • Papaver orientale 'Victoria Louise' - Apricot pink, crepe paper petals form sumptuous large flowers, with distinctive black markings that surround the dark central eye.
  • Papaver orientale 'Queen Alexandra' - Large vibrant flowers of an intense and vivid coral pink make an eye-catching display.

How to Grow
When growing Oriental Poppies, choose a sunny position in rich fertile, well drained soil. Add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil prior to planting, mixing it thoroughly and deeply.

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.

More Info
Deadhead faded poppy flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. Cut back old foliage to ground level in autumn. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Oriental poppy in spring.
