Item # 6806 Papaver orientale
An exotic touch of the East!
We don't think you'll find poppies any place else for this low, low price! Oriental Poppies bloom in late-spring, adding an exotic touch of the East to your landscape. Mixed colors only, these have large blossoms of pure white, crimson, pink or orange-red. Strong, well-rooted 2-year plants that are the improved free-blooming variety sent. Prefer full sun and thrive for years. Oriental Poppies will grow in the south and bloom in part shade. Drought and heat tolerant.
Planting tip: work well rotted manure or aged compost into the bed, apply bone meal or lime into the top of the soil along with a high phosphorous-type fertilizer. Dig the hole deep enough to accommodate the poppies taproot, keeping the crown -2 inches below the soil surface. Fill hole with soil and tap firmly but gently to make sure there are no air pockets. Water gently but thoroughly. Mulch the first winter to prevent the soil from heaving.
