Princess Victoria Louise Poppy
Princess Victoria Louise Poppy is an Oriental Poppy and will provide a cheerful display of huge, deep red petaled flowers in early summer to midsummer. The centers of each poppy are black and makes for a striking display. The plant forms a low clump of deep green, coarse, hairy leaves, and will go dormant after flowering and will completely disappear by late summer. Plant Princess Victoria Louise Poppy with other plantings that will cover up their spot in the garden as they disappear.
This Poppy will grow to a height of 24" to 36" tall and 18" to 24" wide. Plant Princess Victoria Louise in full sun in moist, well drained soil. Poppies will also tolerate wet soil so you can plant these next to a pond or stream or in a boggy area. When in bloom, they will attract butterflies and bees and they make a great cut flower. Deer tend to stay away from poppies and they will work well in containers. Princess Victoria Louise Poppy is also a Firewise plant.
You can plant Princess Victoria Louise Poppy in an old fashioned Cottage
Garden or try this one in a Rock Garden.
