3x Papaver orientale "Picotee", White/Orange - Bare-rooted - Hardy plant

Papaver orientale
Simple. Pure. Fresh from the garden.
We cannot wait. The end of spring can't come soon enough. That is when the Papaver orientale (oriental poppy) "Picotee" makes its entrance. Fringed, cream-coloured flowers with orange accents, surrounding a dark centre that really pops. You will receive the Papaver orientale "Picotee" 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. The oriental poppy "Picotee" should be planted in full sun so that it blooms to its full potential. They can also be planted in flower pots on a patio, roof terrace or balcony. Or just plant them separately around the garden. The poppy only needs water during prolonged dry spells.

Oriental poppies (Papaver orientale) in the border

Oriental poppy (Papaver orientale) will be a real eye-catcher in your beds or borders early summer, thanks to the opulent, bright flowers. Poppies go terrifically well with Iris Germanica group (Bearded Iris) as well as Lupins. Plant a couple of late flowering plants in front of your poppies like Sidalcae (Malva) or Mondarda (bee balm). Poppies look great in the rockery too.


Water your oriental poppy (Papaver orientale) extra in periods of drought but don’t make the soil too wet as it won’t appreciate it. Snip out overblown flower stems entirely to encourage a strong reflowering. Flowering continues until July and often several flowers appear again in late summer. In late summer this plants stems above ground die back entirely. You can cut back all the spoiled foliage and new leaf will shoot from the base. Mulch the plants with a layer of leaf litter to get them through the winter and you will soon see new shoots. It’s best not to move this poppy around too much, leave it where you plant it.
