Product Description

An iconic, cottage garden perennials, yet with origins far away, the classic large flowered poppy with its characteristic black blotch in the centre is followed by statuesque seed heads that add longer season interest.

One of the more unusual varieties, Patty's Plum is noted for its blousy, ruffled blooms that look like antique silk and its coarse, bristly leaves that provide a great backdrop for other plants.

A real low maintenance, easy plant to grow, these poppies make a bold statement when planted as a group or as individual specimens.

A very tough, hardy and robust perennial, the Oriental Poppy dies back underground each winter, and emerges bigger and better for years to come.

Supplied as a pack of 3 plants in 9cm pots to plant out straight into your garden. Height 90cm x 60cm, flowering May - June.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Oriental Poppy Patty's Plum:

  • Best planted in a well-drained soil in full sun, Oriental Poppies can sprawl, so do appreciate a little support from other plants or stakes.
  • Well-drained soil is essential and add plenty of humus to poor soils to retain moisture. Remember to allow plenty of room for growth as these poppies may reach a metre or so in height.
  • Plant in a sheltered site to prevent wind damage to the blooms.
  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Dig a planting hole and sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi (Rootgrow) into the base.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

 

Aftercare Advice for poppies:

  • Keep newly planted poppies well-watered until established.
  • Give plants a dressing of fish blood and bone in the autumn.
  • Provide support before the flowers appear.
  • Mulch with well-rotted manure or compost in autumn and keep well-watered.

 

Pruning Advice for Patty's Plum:

  • Cut back to ground level after flowering. Lift and divide large clumps in autumn.
  • If cut back after flowering, they may even produce a second flush.
