Description

P. ‘Karine' is one of the finest Oriental poppies of all, bearing lots of natural looking dainty pale pink saucers held on tall stems. The delicate, single flowers are open and shallow-cupped with petals that shrug off rain, not ruffled and blowsy like many of the other cultivars in this species.

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.
