An oriental poppy. Fresh from the garden.

We cannot wait until the end of the spring. That's when the phenomenal Papaver orientale (oriental poppy) "Türkenlouis" makes its entrance. Its fringed, red flowers are enormous and have a dark centre. They are 15 cm in diameter. The flowers bloom on 65-cm stems. You will receive the Papaver orientale "Türkenlouis" as bare-root stock in sugar cane sacking. This is more environmentally friendly than plastic nursery pots. The roots are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already one year old. This gives them additional strength, enabling them to grow faster than they would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They flower better and they are more economical. Bare-root stock plants grow when it becomes warmer. They are winter-hardy perennials. They can be planted at any time, provided that the ground is not frozen. They will begin blooming at the end of spring. Short but strong. Oriental poppies should be planted in full sun. They can be planted in flower pots or separately around the garden. Only water the poppies when long dry periods occur.

Planting

Plant the Papaver orientale ‘Türkenlouis’ in the garden as soon as possible after delivery. Prepare a large planting hole and loosen the soil well. Improve poor garden soil by adding compost and cow manure fertiliser pellets. Heavy soils can be improved by adding some sharp sand. Place the root ball of the poppy at the correct depth in the planting hole, which means that the top of the root ball should be just below the ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. The Papaver orientale ‘Türkenlouis’ grows and flowers best in loose, well-drained soil in full sun.

Papaver orientale ‘Türkenlouis’ in borders

Thanks to its large and brightly coloured flowers, the Papaver orientale ‘Türkenlouis’ is a real eye-catcher in the garden border in early summer. Oriental poppies go together exceptionally well with bearded irises (Iris Germanica group) and lupins. Plant a few late-flowering plants, such as the Greek malva (Sidalcea) or bee balm (Monarda), together with the poppies. Also look great planted in a rock garden.

Care

Make sure to water the Papaver orientale ‘Türkenlouis’ more often during dry periods, but not too much, as it does not tolerate waterlogged soil very well. Remove faded flower stems completely in order to encourage more abundant flowering. This poppy flowers until July and a few flowers may even appear in late summer. In late summer, the stems above the ground die. Cut away all scraggly leaves at this time and new leaves will grow from the roots. Cover the plants in winter with a layer of fallen leaves. In the spring, cut away all dead leaves from the plants. New shoots will soon appear above the ground. This poppy should not be replanted.

Extra

The flowers of the Papaver orientale ‘Türkenlouis’ are very large and have a striking red colour. The petals are highly fringed along the edges with, in the centre, black spots and a ring full of dark-coloured stamens. Both the leaves and stems are slightly hairy. The clump will increase each year and produce even more flowers. The Dutch name for this plant is ‘Oriental poppy'.
