Papaver orientale 'Turkenlouis'
Common Name: Poppy-Oriental
Ships As: 1 Perennial Bareroot
Fiery bright red blossoms with deeply fringed, ruffled petals are borne on wiry, pubescent stems from late spring thru early summer. The petals have a crepe-like appearance and a satiny texture. Each flower can measure 4 to 6 inches across. In the center of a poppy's flower rests a very large, velvety-black seed capsule surrounded by prominent, dark purple stamens. Altogether, these flowers absolutely steal the show when they are in bloom. After the bloom cycle is completed however, these perennials will go dormant, so plan on planting other plants nearby to fill in the gaps.
