Papaver orientale ‘Miss Piggy’


Oriental Poppy

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.401.980


Oriental Poppies provide a cheerful display of huge, satiny flowers in late spring and early summer. Plants form low mounds of coarse, hairy leaves, and usually go dormant, disappearing completely by late summer. This selection has unique flowers with bizarrely ruffled petals of soft lilac pink, with a black center. 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. Flowers are good for cutting, picked just as the buds begin to open. USPP#17610, CPBRAF: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
