Showy lavender-grey blooms in early summer
Ideal for dotting among wispy grasses and late-summer perennials
Make spectacular cut flowers
With its lavender-grey ruffled petals, this striking hardy perennial makes a showy addition to sunny perennial borders. The nectar-rich blooms are loved by pollinating insects and make spectacular cut flowers for early summer bouquets. The flowers of Poppy ‘Manhattan’ are followed by large, rounded seed heads that make an interesting feature if left in place.
Like all Oriental Poppies, the downy foliage will virtually disappear by late summer, so this variety is best grown among wispy grasses or late summer perennials that will plug any gaps left behind. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 40cm (16").
Height Up to 60cm (24in)
Spread Up to 40cm (16in)

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. The growth points of most bare root perennials should be set about an inch below the soil surface. New growth will appear in spring.
