Product Description - Papaver (orientale) Bolero

Papaver (orientale) Bolero

The Bolero poppy is well grown and has large, cup-shaped, dark pink flowers with dark purple eyes and black specks at the base. Bright inflorescences planted in small groups will add a chic colour to borders and attract attention from late spring to early summer.

Appearance and aroma of Bolero poppy

Bolero poppy is a bushy herbaceous perennial with silvery-green leaves and tall bristly stems. The buds open in summer with large saucer-shaped cherry-pink flowers with dark spots near the petals. This poppy variety pleases the eye with huge satin flowers in May-June.

The culture forms a low mound of coarse hairy leaves, completely disappearing by the end of summer by hibernating. Plant plants that will become bushy later in the season, such as rudbeckia, Russian sage or autumn-flowering grasses, next to Bolero poppies. The division takes place in August/September. Excellent for cutting when the flowers are picked as soon as they open.

Guide and tips for planting papaver plants

  • Choose the planting location: Papaver plants prefer full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. Avoid planting in areas with standing water or where the soil remains soggy after rainfall.

  • Prepare the soil: Loosen the soil and remove any weeds or debris from the planting area. Amend the soil with compost or organic matter to improve the soil's fertility and drainage.

  • Dig a hole: Dig a hole deep enough to accommodate the roots of the plant. The hole should be slightly wider than the spread of the roots.

  • Place the plant in the hole: Carefully remove the plant from its container and gently loosen any tangled roots. Place the plant in the hole and backfill with soil, making sure the crown of the plant, where the roots meet the stem, is level with the soil surface. Press down firmly to eliminate air pockets.

  • Water the plant: Give the plant a thorough watering after planting to settle the soil around the roots. Continue to water the plant regularly to keep the soil evenly moist until the plant becomes established.

  • Mulch the plant: Add a layer of organic mulch around the plant to help retain moisture and suppress weed growth. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the base of the plant to prevent rot.

  • Monitor the plant: Keep an eye on the plant's growth and water it regularly as needed. Papaver plants generally bloom in late spring to early summer and may require occasional deadheading to encourage continued blooming.
