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 Patty's Plum Papaver is an enchanting shade of deep dusty purple, with darker eyes towards the base of the petals. You can see the ornamental seed pod it leaves behind in the second picture.

Planting conditions: Oriental Poppies like sun, although part shade is ok. Once established, they require no care and will come back with an ever-larger display of blooms each Spring.

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. Can be grown in containers. Toxic, take care that pets and kids do not ingest. Deer Resistant.
