Papaver orientale ‘Mrs Perry’
at Digging Dog

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.

Famed British nurseryman Amos Perry is credited for starting the Poppy craze in 1906 when he plucked this deeply cupped salmon-pink seedling from a bed of red-blooming poppies. Swirling around knobby coal-black centers, immense, rumpled silky petals are dabbed with midnight-purple bases. ‘Mrs. Perry’s delicate floral gorgeousness crowns straight lanky stems and light green ferny foliage.

Blooms June

Size: 2-1/2' high x 20" wide; hardy to zone 3.
