Papaver - Poppy


The oriental poppy - Papaver orientale - represents a real highlight for us in the garden year. We have always been looking forward to it for a long time; are thrilled when the thick, hairy buds finally open to opulent flower artworks; cut one or the other flower for the vase to have it in the house around us and tell everyone who knows or maybe does not want to know how beautiful this poppy is. A short but powerful eruption of the zest for life!

 

Of course, all these poppies want a sunny location, we have also had good experiences with partially shaded planting sites. Since they are genetically fixed by the origin of summer-sunlit, Near-Asian mountains, in midsummer, it is recommended that this poppy in groups of max. to plant three specimens. This avoids larger holes in the perennial flowerbed, which would disappear again in the course of September / October. At this time, the re-emergence occurs, which is often maintained over the winter.

 

Once planted, the oriental poppy likes to linger in its place and not like to move. The deep tap roots save an ingrown plant any castings, but also want to be able to grow undisturbed. Oh well - snails like to let him stand.
