Description Fine Print
 
Romneya coulteri  is an upright, blue-green foliaged poppy relative that is a semi-evergreen subshrub preferring a hot, sunny space in well-drained, crummy soil. For this you will be rewarded with an almost continuous display of large, pure white, crinkled petals with prominent raised yellow stamens that appear on the ends of each stem and look like large fried eggs sunny side up! Sometimes hard to establish and resents being moved - so choose the spot well! Cut back to the base in winter and mulch, if exposed.
