Papaver orientale ‘Drunken Choir Boy’
Not only is this my favourite name for a plant but also my favourite oriental poppy. The huge and sumptuous flowers, white with a dark blotch, flush pink with age. We grow all the oriental poppies in the vegetable garden where they are well fed and watered. They are definitely not drought tolerant. After the first flush of flowers is over I cut the old flower stems to ground level, feed and water the plants well and sometimes am rewarded with get a repeat flowering in the autumn. 60cm x 60cm.
