Details

32-36" tall x 24" wide (seed propagated). Brilliant Oriental Poppy is a scarlet-orange flower made famous by New Mexico artist Georgia O'Keeffe's beautiful paintings from the 1930s. And no wonder: spring in Santa Fe brings with it drifts of Brilliant Oriental Poppies blooming all over town. Papaver orientale Brilliant will go dormant in summer, so mix these plants into the middle of perennial beds with other tall growing perennials to cover up the browning foliage. Grows well in most soil types including clay. This oriental poppy is an outstanding seed grown variety.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Papaver orientale Brilliant:

    Brilliant pouted in the shade for a year before I moved it to full sun. This spring it grew to 2 1/2 feet tall, full foliage and bloomed multiple lovely brilliant orange red blooms in June. It bloomed at the same time as my purple iris and made a striking contrast. Thank you High Country Garden. Your plants arrive packaged more carefully and healthier than any other online nursery I have ever used.

          Using plants for sustainable landscaping that is low water consumption and adds beauty to area. Hope to provide a visually pleasing, environmentally diverse area for animals as a habitat. We avoid pesticides and herbicides with this diversity. As a perennial it will propagate with little tillage.We look forward to it brilliance and beauty. Another perk is it is hardy in zone 3-4.

              Q & A

              USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

              To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

              • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
              • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
