The Poppy Oriental, Oriental Blend, 'Papaver orientale', will be the most dramatic flower in your garden when its large 4 to 8 inch crepe paper-like flowers appear. This is a very hardy perennial in cooler climates and it is short lived in warmer climates, but no less dramatic. The foliage completely dies back after bloom and reappears in the fall. The large flowers appear in colors of orange, pink, red, salmon, and white. Oriental Poppies have a blooming season of 2 to 3 weeks and they bloom in late spring or early summer.The Oriental Blend prefers full sun and must have well drained soil. Too much soggy moisture will rot the plant at its base. Plant the seed in early spring, 2 to 4 weeks before the last average frost date or in late summer. This Poppy looks great mixed in with summer and fall blooming annuals and perennials.
Scientific Name : Papaver orientale
