Full Product Details

Product Information

Few flowers boast the same thought-provoking aura that emanates from delightful perennial poppies, such as ‘Red Rumble’ Papaver. 

Also known as a Papaver orientale, this variety produces large, intensely red flowers held up on strong and upright stems, growing from a compact plant that remains tidy and uniform in the garden.

A characteristic dark splotch can be seen at the centre of each large bloom, followed by seed heads. The green foliage is covered in silver hairs, remaining full of colour throughout the flowering process, making it ideal for planting in beds, borders, and pots.

The strong stems also make these beauties perfect for cutting, to be brought inside and enjoyed for even longer – just make sure to plant plenty to share with family and friends!

Low maintenance and very easy to grow, these poppies make a bold statement when planted as en masse, or as individual specimens. This plant is thankfully less sensitive to diseases than other varieties, and keeps green and healthy foliage for a long period of time, adding garden interest for months.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant straight out into the garden.

Care Information

Planting Advice

  • Best planted in a well-drained soil in full sun, Oriental Poppies can sprawl, so do appreciate a little support from other plants or stakes.
  • Well-drained soil is essential and add plenty of humus to poor soils to retain moisture. Remember to allow plenty of room for growth as these poppies may reach a metre or so in height.
  • Plant in a sheltered site to prevent wind damage to the blooms.
  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Dig a planting hole and sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi (Rootgrow) into the base.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

Aftercare Advice for Oriental Poppies:

  • Keep newly planted poppies well-watered until established.
  • Give plants a dressing of fish blood and bone in the autumn.
  • Provide support before the flowers appear.
  • Mulch with well-rotted manure or compost in autumn and keep well-watered.

Pruning Advice:

  • Cut back to ground level after flowering. Lift and divide large clumps in autumn.
  • If cut back after flowering, they may even produce a second flush.
