Papaver Turkenlouis


SKU: PER10-Papaver Turkenlouis


Papaver orientale 'Türkenlouis'

Loose clumps of fuzzy foliage with numerous stalks of paper-like flowers.

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 mid-sized selection features fiery scarlet-red flowers with fringed edges. Because they disappear in summer, place something beside Oriental Poppies that will get bushy later in the season, such as Rudbeckia, Russian Sage, or fall-flowering grasses. Divide in August to September. Flowers are good for cutting, picked just as the buds begin to open.
