Papaver Allegro Plants x10

  • Catalogue Code 5117-1010
  • Pack Contents: 10 Young Plants
  • Beautiful in bud and full bloom
  • Hardy in all UK locations
  • Makes a beautiful vase flower

Rich and exuberant cherry-red Oriental poppies burst open from attractive downy buds. Look fantastic in pots and flower beds alike, and wonderful in vases in the home.

Gardeners and designers love using Papaver Allegro in their garden schemes because they give an impact and they are so hardy despite their tropical appearance.

Plant with hardy grasses for adding texture to your poppy displays. This tantalises several of your senses including the tactile feel of the grass blades and the rustling of the leaves in the wind.  

These flowers are delivered to you as young plants that are around 12cm (5in) from root to tip. Plants at this stage are at the perfect stage of development to grow and flower really fast once planted.

On a pleasant and dry spring or summer day plant out into soil and water well. As the plants start to flower we recommend you add a high potassium fertiliser to give your flowers a real boost.
