Poppies Patty's Plum Set of 3 Roots



Overview & Details

Poppies Patty's Plum Set of 3 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. They also make for stunning cut flowers, but you will have to sear the ends of freshly cut stems with a match. As they have appeared on ravaged battlefields, they have come to symbolize death and rebirth. Papaver Patty's Plum is a tried and trouble free variety, with an unique soft plum color like no other poppy and is among the most popular of all poppies.

Planting 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

Continuing Care
  • 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
