‘Little Patty’s Plum’ PoppyPapaver orientale 20" tall. Dusky damson-plum-colored blossoms. A short version of the original ‘Patty’s Plum’ poppy, a compost-pile surprise discovered in the 1990s by gardener Sandra Pope. Named for plantswoman Patricia Marrow, owner of the famous Kingsdon Nursery in Somerset, England.
Finely cut bristly frosty-green leaves, shimmering crepe-paper blossoms, unique seedpods good in arrangements. The entire plant goes summer-dormant—don’t be alarmed when the leaves turn brown and disappear almost entirely by August. Basal mats of new leaves appear in the fall.
Plant in full to part sun and neutral well-drained soil. Z3. (bare-root crowns)
