Oriental Poppies, or Papaver, offer a stunning flush of color with large 6" blooms with tissue-paper-like petals that flounce in the wind. They come in a variety of stunning colors that go beyond the common bright orange and red options. The blooms last for only a couple of weeks, and you can either dead head the spent blooms, or leave them to develop into seed pods, which can have a nice ornamental effect as well. Best planted in groups of three or more.

The Forncett Summer Papaver is the perfect shade of salmon, with dark black markings at the center, and deeply etched pinking on the edge of each frilly petal. 

Planting conditions: Oriental Poppies like sun, although part shade is ok. Once established, they are like grown children who take care of themselves (that's a thing, right?), and require no effort.

Care: A bit of extra water when they start to set buds will encourage more and larger blooms.

Sun: Full-sun to part shade. 

Blooms: Papaver bloom for a couple of glorious weeks in the late Spring. 

Perennial: Comes back each year in zones 3-8. 

Deer Resistant.
