Orientale Poppy (Papaver Orientale Mix) - Orientale Poppies add old-fashioned charm to gardens. These perennials establish well from Poppy seeds, and they grow well in sunny areas in soil that is well-drained. Oriental Poppy plants are hardy and do well in mountain wildflower gardens at high elevations. The silky, bowl-shaped flowers appear in late spring and burst from distinctive buds covered in bristly hairs. This Poppy mix includes shades of red, orange, pink, white and bi-colored forms. Many of the wildflowers feature inky-dark blotches at the base of the petals and colorful stamens in the center. Oriental Poppies have seed pods that will drop wildflower seeds for germination the following spring. There's nothing more beautiful than a meadow filled with Poppy wildflowers!
