Papaver commutatum
'Ladybird'

Our most popular Poppy! Unbeatable for putting the “pop” in your Spring garden with its brilliant, true red blooms & black spots, ‘Ladybird’ is positively dazzling when massed. I adore her tidy, well-behaved habit, it grows to only about 15” tall & 12-18” across with low, neat foliage bearing 15 or more 3” blooms at a time. Combine it with Nemophila menziesii “Baby Blue Eyes” or Limnanthes douglasii “Meadow Foam” for wondrous effect! Choice in a container, too – at least 5 gal. size. Give it rich soil and dead-head for looongest bloom.

Poppy Fans - As cool season growers, Papavers should be planted only when extreme heat or extreme cold is not anticipated!
