Details

32-36" tall x 24" wide (seed propagated). This scarlet-orange flower has been 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 Oriental Poppies blooming all over town. These poppies go dormant in summer, so mix them 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.

        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).
