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|
|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.|
