These huge, orange flowers are carried by wiry stems, and bloom from late spring to early summer. The delicate blooms are centered by black seeds and dark purple stamens. Poppies are sure to be eye-catching at their peak, and attract hummingbirds. They also make wonderful cut or dried flowers.


Prince of Orange Oriental Poppy 


Common Name: Oriental Poppy

Huge blossoms the color of tangerines are borne on wiry, pubescent stems from late spring thru early summer. The petals have a crepe-like appearance and a satiny texture. Each flower can measure 4 to 5 inches across.  In the center of a poppy's flower rests a very large, velvety-black seed capsule surrounded by prominent, dark purple stamens. Altogether, these flowers absolutely steal the show when they are in bloom. After the bloom cycle is completed however, these perennials will go dormant, so plan on planting other plants nearby to fill in the gaps.
