Enormous Poppies

June 9, 2008

Every year I forget just how big the blooms are on our oriental poppies (Papaver orientale). Maybe it’s because the flowering period is rather short. Or maybe because they die back after flowering and I don’t notice them all summer when I spend the most time in the garden. In any case they are certainly worth having in the garden, even if their glory is short lived.
