With large furry leaves that appear in the spring, this herbaceous plant throws huge flowers into the air during the late spring and early summer months. Papaver orientale is a PERENNIAL growing to 1 m (3ft 3in) by m (2ft 7in) at a medium rate. It is hardy to zone (UK) 3 and is not frost tender. It is in flower from May to June, and the seeds ripen from July to August. The species is hermaphrodite (has both male and female organs) and is pollinated by Bees. The plant is self-fertile.

    For the Oriental Poppies to bloom they need an extended chill time. The ideal weather is a cool summer followed by a cold winter. They need lots of full sunshine, well draining soil. Heat and humidity can effect flowering and too much water will also inhibit flowering.

With crepe-like flowers up to 8 or even 10" across, "oriental poppies" make the biggest show of the year in perennial gardens everywhere. The basic common one is always orange, but today, hybrids of all kinds of shades are 5/5(1).
