Oriental poppies (Papaver orientale) are the royal family of the early summer garden. Their large (3-6") tissue paper-like flowers offer a translucent, almost glowing presence that is breathtaking to behold. Fuzzy foliage will turn brown after flowering and disappear, to reappear in early fall. Our collection features 3 plants of each variety shown: Papaver orientale ‘Brilliant’, ‘Royal Wedding’, and ‘Beauty of Livermere’.

One of the most familiar of all poppies is the Oriental poppy. This perennial garden plant is a common feature of northern gardens, with its feathery foliage and orange, red, or salmon flowers that bloom in June and July. Some popular cultivars include 'Allegro' (a dwarf form that grows to 20 inches), 'Beauty of Livermere' (blood-red flowers, growing 2–3 feet), 'Fatima' (white flowers edged with pink), 'Patty's Plum' (plum-pink flowers, growing to 30 inches), and 'Princess Victoria Louise' (pink flowers, growing to 30 inches). The plume poppy is another uncharacteristic poppy flower. Its flowers aren't the common cup shape but instead form in long panicles (plumes) of white blooms, alongside large scalloped leaves. And, rather than being beautiful and difficult to grow like the Himalayan poppy, it's not very attractive and quite easy to grow—so easy, in fact, that it crosses over into the invasive category. This perennial spreads aggressively through rhizomes and self-seeding (if not deadheaded). So, for many, the plume poppy turns out to be one of those beautiful barbarians—a lovely but dangerous plant that ends up being an unwelcome plant in your garden. A common roadside poppy, the greater celandine is rarely planted deliberately. This somewhat compact biennial blooms with yellow flowers from May to August, and it self-seeds so aggressively that it can be hard to eradicate, even in a closely tended garden. Across much of the Midwest and the Northeast, it's dangerously invasive and outcompetes native species as well as being toxic. (Source: www.thespruce.com)
