Oriental
Poppy
Papaver orientale

Description:
Poppies are popular and undemanding plants that have been grown for generations. When in bloom, they are the stars of the flower border, oozing vivid colors of every shade except blue.  In the center of a poppy's flower rests a very large, velvety-black seed capsule surrounded by prominent, dark purple stamens.

Light Requirements: They will perform best in rich, well-drained soils in full sun.

Dried flower, border plant, specimen, cut flower, deer resistant, rabbit resistant, attracts birds, attracts hummingbirds

Care:

Plant divisions are best made in late summer or early fall. Poppies are prized cut flowers. They should be cut just when buds start to break and their ends should be seared to prevent sap leakage from their stems. After the bloom cycle is completed however, these perennials will go dormant, so plan on planting other plants nearby to fill in the gaps.
