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").

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.
