PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Papaver rupifragum 'Tangerine Parfait'
Moroccan Poppy, Spanish Poppy
Type/Hardiness Herbaceous, Perennial, Hardy
Flowering period June-October
Height 12-18in/30-45cm
Light preference Full sun
Soil preference Light, free-draining
Sowing time/depth Spring, barely cover
Soft, divided, grey-green leaves contrast beautifully with the double, soft-orange blooms on thin, wiry stems, which are produced continuously throught the summer months and well into autumn. The delicate seed heads can be used in dried flower arrangements. A short-lived perennial, but self-seeds.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Resents disturbance so it is best to sow direct - just scatter seed in the desired position. Protect seedlings from slugs and snails. Thin to 1ft/30cm apart, choosing the most robust plants. Alternatively, sow thinly in modules, retaining one plant in each. Plant out carefully, avoiding root disturbance.
