BloomBox Club Plant Care Hub
(aka Papaver orientale 'Royal Wedding')
I'm oriental, as I'm sure you could guess by my name.
My foliage is exotic and furry, whilst my blooms are delicate and like tissue paper, in pure white.
60cm, and 50cm in spread
Grow me in a moist, well drained soil, in a sunny border.
I will flower from May to July each year.
Cut me back to the ground in Autum each year and remove my blooms as they fade.
I will last a few years, but you can lift and divide my clumps in the Autumn if you want more of me.
Once I'm established I won't need much extra water.
When snipping off stems for a vase indoors, I'll last longer if you burn the ends of my stems.
