Description Fine Print
 
Papaver 'Watermelon' produces cheerful, glowing, salmony-pink flowers with black splotches at the base of each petal and black centres on top of a dense, robust, dark green foliage. Oriental poppies are dramatic additions to the perennial border. They can go through a "dumb phase" after blooming so always plant a nice mound of foliage to one foot high in front of your poppy clumps.
