Papaver 'Patty's Plum' is a really luscious oriental poppy with large, blousy flowers of deep reddish-purple, each with a contrasting darker centre. These flowers appear in early summer, accompanied by bristly, grey-green leaves, which make the perfect backdrop. This plant will create a delightful display of rich colour in your bed or border: and the flowers are very effective as cut blooms for indoors, too. They are also great for attracting butterflies and bees into the garden!

Oriental poppies are easy to grow and each plant will produce several flowers. If cut back after flowering, they may even produce a second flush before the end of the growing season. Plant it in a sunny border, alongside grasses or late summer-flowering perennials, such as dahlias. Papaver orientale 'Patty's Plum' looks especially goo next to plants with silver foliage. Cut back untidy foliage after flowering.
