Description

This trio of Oriental poppies certainly aren’t quiet additions to the border, they are here to sing and shout with displays of huge, ruffled, fringed and twisted satiny flowers in late spring and early summer. The unusual pastel shades of salmon, soft lilac and lavender-streaked, plum-coloured flowers with a black centre will be instant focal points in new or established borders.

This collection contains 1 or 3 bare roots each of:
  • Papaver orientale 'Fancy Feathers'
  • Papaver orientale 'Ruffled Patty'
  • Papaver orientale 'Miss Piggy'

Care Tips

Provide support to protect from wind and rain. Cut to ground level after flowering and the leaves will quickly grow again to form a backdrop for other plants in the border. Propagate by division in spring.
