Overview & Details

Poppies Mixed Set of 5 Roots
Oriental poppies are beautiful in a range of landscape situations, and this mixture consists of a variety of colors that will match or blend into any garden's color scheme. The clumps will become larger each year but will never be invasive. As they have appeared on ravaged battlefields, they have come to symbolize death and rebirth.
Poppies make stunning cut flowers; be sure to sear the ends of freshly cut stems with a match.

Planting Instructions

  • Oriental poppies grow well in poor to average soil
  • Avoid soggy ground as they hate wet feet
  • They prefer the cooler temperatures of spring and fall
  • After flowering, allow the poppies to die back during the summer heat, as excess watering will kill them
  • Blooms can be forced indoors with special treatment

Continuing Care

  • Do not disturb after established to avoid losing a blooming season

  • They are best divided and replanted in fall if one must move them

  • Winter protection in zones 3 -6 may be necessary, which can be done after a light freeze, using mulch, pine needles or some other loose material
