A heritage variety of the perennial oriental poppy with giant salmon-red crepe-like flowers (with black centres) in mid June through July. This poppy grows to about 80cm in height and is a good border plant, as well as an eye catching cut flower. The leaves die down in late summer and then start growing again in the autumn.
Oriental poppies prefer a sunny spot and well drained soil.
