Buy Papaver orientale 'Royal Wedding' oriental poppy: Gloriously large flowers

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moist, well-drained
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Exquisite white flowers, each with a black centre, top downy, upright stems in early summer. This striking oriental poppy will flourish in any sunny, well drained border, however it looks particularly good in a contemporary setting where the colour range has been restricted to whites and silvers. The dried seed-heads are useful for flower arrangements.

  • Garden care: Cut back to ground level after flowering. Lift and divide large clumps in autumn.

Highly recommended !


Using as a foil to crimson papaver. Very healthy growth but waiting for its flowering !





I have included these in a herbaceous bed to give more privacy to a seating area during the summer and I am very pleased with the effect - a summer screening bed of very pretty and healthy perennials.

Can I grow Tricyrtis formosana 'Dark Beauty' in a pot and Poppies at the bottom of the garden? Hi, We have a tiny North facing shaded garden and I'm looking for some Autumn colour for our patio. Can I grow Tricyrtis formosana 'Dark Beauty' in a pot? If so how big should the pot be? If not can you recommend something else please? Also I'd love to grow some poppies, we get a fair amount of sunshine in the spring and summer at the very end of the garden will I be able to grow Papaver orientale 'Perry's White' and Papaver orientale 'Effendi' here? Thank you Sally

Hello Sally, These do well in pots, and I would say one about 40 x 40cm filled with John Innes No2 would be suitable. As for the poppies, these flower best in full sun, but they will also grow in a little light shade. I'm afraid though it may be trial and error to see if your spot is sunny enough. I hope this helps.
