Papaver orientale 'Beauty of Livermere' (Oriental Poppy)

Thumbnail Photo

Grow your oriental poppies in really sharp drainage or they will die out over winter. The foliage will go dormant after blooming so combine with other perennials such as ornamental grasses, achillea, or filipendula to cover the dormancy. Even with all these concerns, oriental poppies really deserve a place in your gardens. The huge, dinner plate size of these rich, dark, fire engine red flowers with their course, hairy foliage just can't be beat.
