Details

36" tall x 24" wide (seed propagated). "Princess Louise" poppy is an unusual color that attracts gardeners who shy away from the brighter scarlet and orange shades. The huge 5" salmon-pink flowers harmonize well with rose-red Centranthus, violet-blue Salvia, and soft blue Nepeta. Poppies planted in spring often won't flower until the following year. Oriental Poppies go summer-dormant (leaves turn brown and lie down on the ground) in July and August after blooming is finished. New growth re-appears in early fall. A great flower for cold, short-season areas.

    The poppies grew beautiful lush foliage but not one bloom! I bought 3 plants and they all did this. Can I expect blooms next year?

      Comments about High Country Gardens Papaver orientale Princess Louise:

      I bought two of these last year and planted them. They tripled in size and produced beautiful flowers. Before winter, I decided to transplant them to a sunnier spot. I must have left a few roots behind, because this spring EIGHT new plants have sprouted in the original planting spot!

        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).
