Blooming in my garden: Oriental Poppy ‘Ruffled Patty’

12 05 2011

Papaver orientale ‘Ruffled Patty’—this hybrid perennial poppy blooms in May and June with huge pale pink flowers that have double and fringed petals. Zones 3-8, part to full sun and average soil, height 30″ / spread 18″

Summer set lip to earth’s bosom bare,
And left the flushed print in a poppy there.

—Francis Thompson, The Poppy, 1891
