Poppy beauty a la Orientale!

The Oriental Poppy is profusely saturated with colour!  The orange-scarlet petals shine with a natural brillance.  The classic red poppy is well known as the flower of remembrance, but selective breeding has also produced blooms in white, to shades of pink.  The poppy blooms early in summer bearing large cup-shaped, crepe-like petals.  Truly a floral beauty, that would stand out in any garden!
