Papaver orientale ‘Allegro’


Oriental Poppy

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.401.400


Oriental Poppies provide a cheerful display of huge, satiny flowers in late spring and early summer. Plants form a low clump of coarse, hairy leaves, and usually go dormant, disappearing completely by late summer. This strain has scarlet-orange blooms, with a black centre. The compact habit makes this suitable for towards the front of the border. Because they disappear in summer, plant something beside Oriental Poppies that will get bushy later in the season, such as Rudbeckia, Russian Sage, or fall-flowering grasses. Divide in August to September.
