Care instructions

Grow in well-drained soil in full sun. Cut back to ground level after flowering. This may encourage a second flush of flowers. Papavers go dormant in summer, so mix them into the middle of perennial beds with other tall growing perennials to cover up the browning foliage. Lift and divide large clumps in early spring.
