Papaver atlanticum ‘Flore Pleno’

Orange Feather/Moroccan Poppy

Papaver atlanticum Flore Pleno

Papaver

Poppy

Wielded by man since prehistoric times, Poppies have long been associated with sleep and oblivion, and after the First World War, the Flower of Forgetfulness ironically evolved into a symbol for remembrance. Generally distinguished by nodding buds, solitary fleeting flowers gracing long stems, and decorative seed heads, these sun-lovers appreciate a lean, well drained and somewhat dry position.

Papaver atlanticum ‘Flore Pleno’ full sun

Once you witness the sheer crepe paper-thin orange blooms nodding on tall lanky stems above a bluish green rosette, you‘ll see why its common name is so apropos. An applauded brilliantly colored perennial at Chanticleer’s famed ‘ruin and gravel garden’, Orange Feathers resists deer, tolerates drought, loves good drainage plus makes a self-sowing carefree addition to a cottage garden, rockery, stone wall or even a cut arrangement.

Blooms June–August

Size: 18"–2' 0" high x 15" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.

Customer Comment:

“I held my breath and opened the box (after a long delay in opening the delivered plants, due to catastrophic flooding), dug down through the damp paper shreds and found all the plants alive!!!! I'm so relieved. I had to write and thank you for the hardiness of the plants, and for packing them so carefully.... Thank you, Digging Dog. I'll be back.”
