Papaver Snow Goose

Oriental Poppy

Sorry Sold Out

Moonlight Magic
White flowers bring a serene, magical touch to any garden. Satiny ruffled blossoms emerge flushed pink with dark wine splashes then the pink transforms to white. The ‘plumage’ of this Snow Goose will rival its namesake noted for its white feathers with black wing tips. Enjoy the subtle glow of Papaver Snow Goose on a moonlit night. White flowers remain more visible at night and provide contrast to help more vibrant colors pop. Plant with larger perennials like Gysophila and Boltonia that will effectively cover the void when the Poppies take a break with the summer heat and enter dormancy. The fascinating attractive seedpods will add a nice touch to dried arrangements. Butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees adore Oriental Poppies.

Papaver General Information

Papaver are breath-taking with their bright shades of reds, pinks, oranges and whites. Robust clumps of ferny foliage support stems of translucent delicate blossoms. Deer resistant and long lived. Poppy flowers resemble silky crepe paper - they are garden stars of the springtime! Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Papaver Plant Care

Prefers loose soil with excellent drainage and can tolerate sandy or rocky soils. Avoid overly rich soils. Division is difficult due to a long taproot. Blooms profusely under cool growing conditions. May go dormant in hot summers. Shear spent flowers to prevent seed set. Cut back after flowering to extend individual plant life. Self seeds freely. 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.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
