Papaver | Poppy 'Brilliant'
Large paper-thin petals form a bowl around the Oriental Poppy’s dark ornamental centers. Sunlight makes the translucent fiery, vivid orange-red petals of this Papaver positively glow with color. Emerging in late spring, Poppies banish the dreariness of the winter months. The foliage forms a clump that persists over winter in small tufts. The fascinating attractive seedpods will add a nice touch to dried arrangements. The blossoms are a favorite for butterflies, hummingbirds and bees.
Bloom Time: Mid spring to late spring
