Papaver

Papaver

Poppies are showy early-summer flowers with petals like crepe paper. They grow 2 to 4 feet tall and bloom in white and all shades of pink and red. Plant Oriental poppies in full sun in well-drained soil. Deadhead flowers, or leave to let the plants self-seed. Stake or support tall plants so they won't flop over.
