Overview & Details

Poppies Orange Set of 5 Roots
Oriental poppies (Papaver) are long used by gardeners in a range of landscape situations. Planting poppies is simple and rewarding when their blooms appear. The clumps will become larger each year but will never be invasive. They can be forced indoors with special treatment. They also make for stunning cut flowers, but you will have to sear the ends of freshly cut stems with a match.

Growing instructions
  • Oriental poppies grow well in poor to average soil; however, soggy ground should be avoided 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

  • Do not disturb after they are established as one is likely to lose 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, with mulch, pine needles or some other loose material
