This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.


  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moist, well-drained
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Exquisite, white flowers each with a black centre, top downy, upright stems in early summer. This striking oriental poppy will flourish in any sunny, well drained border, however it looks particularly good in a contemporary setting where the colour range has been restricted to whites and silvers. The dried seed-heads are useful for flower arrangements.

  • Garden care: Cut back to ground level after flowering. Lift and divide large clumps in autumn.
