Papaver orientale 'Royal Wedding' Seeds Oriental Poppy

Pkt 50 Seeds

Product Description

Royal Wedding oriental poppy produces huge dazzling white blooms with dark hearts and maroon anthers. A long lived perennial that once established is fairly drought tolerant and super easy. Just trim dried foliage off when it dies back in the summer and enjoy a fresh round of foliage in the fall that lasts through the winter. Grows in a wide range of soils but richer soil will cause abundant foliage growth and maybe less flowers so don't amend the area where you will be planting poppies. Good drainage helps them last longer. If you keep up with cutting the first round of flowers it is possible to get second flush. First year flowering if started early enough.
