Poppy, Oriental ‘Royal Wedding’

SKU: 110774 Categories: ,


Oriental Poppies provide a cheerful display of huge, satiny flowers in late spring and early summer. Plants form a low clump of coarse, hairy leaves, and usually go dormant, disappearing completely by late summer. This is a taller selection, featuring large white blossoms, with a maroon-black eye. Because they disappear in summer, plant something beside Oriental Poppies that will get bushy later in the season, such as Rudbeckia, Russian Sage, or fall-flowering grasses. Divide in August/September. Excellent for cutting, when picked just as the buds open.
