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 wonderful selection has clear orange, solitary, upward-facing disc-shaped flowers on upright stems. Rough-textured, dark green foliage. Because they disappear in summer, plant something beside Oriental Poppies that will get bushy later in the season, such as Rudbeckia, Russian Sage, or fall-flowering grasses. Clumps should be moved or divided only in late summer or fall, when the leaves begin to show again.
