Large paper-thin petals form a bowl around the Oriental Poppy’s dark ornamental centers. Sunlight makes the translucent fiery, vivid red petals of this Papaver positively glow with color. The foliage forms a clump that persists over winter in small tufts. The fascinating seedpods will add a nice touch to dried arrangements. The blossoms are a favorite for butterflies, hummingbirds and bees. Spring Shipping only.

Papaver are breath-taking with their bright shades of reds, pinks, oranges and whites. Robust clumps of ferny foliage support tall stems of translucent delicate blossoms. Attractive seed pods can be used to enhance dried arrangements. Best selection for coldest areas (zones 3&4), Not for Gulf states.
When foliage declines, around end of July, pull by hand or cut down foliage, new leaves in late summer/fall should be left for winter.
