Gorgeous crumpled pink, crepe paper
like petals with dark brownish-black blotches in the center. The elegant look of
Victoria Louise unfurls just as spring and summer begin to merge. Plants form clumps of
blue-green foliage very quickly and grow about 32 inches tall. Plants are very
robust growers and extremely free flowering - one of our favorite Oriental Poppies.

Plant in full sun and provide a rich well drained soil. Take time to get
the soil loose and amend with plenty of organic material. Fertilize in early
spring with a top dressing of compost and bone meal. Oriental Poppies are easy to
grow and will thrive for years with little to no attention from the gardener.
