Growing & Maintenance Tips for Papaver orientale 'Royal Wedding'

Poppies are popular and undemanding plants that have been grown for generations. When in bloom, they are the stars of the flower border, oozing vivid colors of every shade except blue. They will perform best in rich, well-drained soils in full sun. Plant divisions are best made in late summer or early fall. Poppies are prized cut flowers. They should be cut just when buds start to break and their ends should be seared to prevent sap leakage from their stems.
