Description

Oriental poppies can be a little on the brash side, but this variety is a pared-down version which enhances its credentials as a permanent border plant. The luminous blooms shine in our climate, producing crepe paper-like bright reddish-pink flowers with dark purple eyes.

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.
