Poppy (Oriental - 'Queen Alexandra') - papaver orientale

Poppy (Oriental - 'Queen Alexandra') - papaver orientale

Light: full sun

Height: 30" (76cm)

Space: 18-24" (45-60cm)

Features: Delicate, salmon-coloured flowers with a dark centre on long stems are sure to attract attention. Bristly, fern-like foliage and unopened buds are interesting on their own. Dependable colour and texture looks great all season.

Uses: Ideal choice for beds, borders, and cutting gardens. Wonderful for rock gardens and containers. Cut flowers are long-lasting in fresh bouquets. 

Care: Easy to grow! Plant in fertile, well-drained soil. Allow soil to dry between thorough waterings. Plants may go dormant after blooming, so expect foliage to die back at that time. May self-seed.
