Comments about High Country Gardens Papaver orientale Fruit Punch:

For some reason, the poppies that arrived with this order compared to other orders I've placed were very small. The Fruit Punch poppy, however, in spite of its fragile start, turned out to be very hardy and grew from almost nothing (about the size of a quarter) to a very good sized and healthy plant by fall. It did not get any flowers its first season, but I expect it to do well through the winter and I'm excited to see what the blooms will be.

Hmm, I'm just not sure. . .

    Comments about High Country Gardens Papaver orientale Fruit Punch:

    I planted these poppies with the hope of creating a predominantly red flower bed. I planted 5 of them. None of them bloomed this year, which was both surprising and disappointing. Hopefully they will bloom next year.

    Q & A

    Suggested Companion Plants:

    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).
