Papaver orientale ‘Patty’s Plum’


Oriental Poppy

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.401.760


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 wonderful selection has deep wine purple-red flowers, unlike any other. 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. Clumps should be moved or divided only in late summer or fall, when the leaves begin to show again. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
