Truly beautiful blooms of powder pink to coral in colour that can reach upto 10cm in width! This is such a lovely variety of the Oriental Poppies, the perfect addition to any cottage garden, mixed border or even large containers. The foliage adds interest too, with furry to the touch and textural to the look leaves that emerge early spring and last into the Autumn before dying back for Winter. Leave the seed heads intact to give a longer period of interest from plants, the seed heads look great when they dry.
