Papaver ‘Heartbeat’

Super Poppy

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.401.910

The Super Poppy series is the result of 30 years of breeding work in California, creating a whole new race of outstanding introductions. Plants have thick and sturdy petals that hold up better to weather and last much longer in flower. They also have a tendency to repeat bloom, particularly in cool summer regions. The habit is sturdy and vigorous. This tall strong-stemmed selection has double petals of deep blood red surrounding a black centre. Foliage may become dormant in the heat of midsummer, simply remove any browned leaves and new ones will appear in autumn or the following year. The creation of plantsman James DeWelt.
