Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Poppy 'Brilliant' is a classic brilliant red with inky black splotches at the centre of each bloom. This bold Oriental Poppy delivers a bright splash of colour towards the front of early summer borders. The satin blooms are held aloft on slender, hairy stems above a clump of grey-green foliage. After flowering the leaves tend to die back, before re-emerging later in the summer with a fresh display of dissected foliage. This easy to grow perennial thrives on any free draining soil and returns year after year. Dot this Poppy among other perennials or plant them in groups to create a strong focal point. Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

When growing Oriental Poppies, choose a sunny position in rich fertile, well drained soil. Add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil prior to planting, mixing it thoroughly and deeply.
Deadhead faded poppy flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. Cut back old foliage to ground level in autumn. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Oriental poppy in spring.
