Papaver atlanticum 'Flore Pleno' "Moroccan Poppy"

Does someone you know murder every plant you’ve ever given them? Well, THIS is seriously the plant you want to give them to build their confidence back up. Almost never out of bloom and incredibly tough, it grows anywhere as long as it gets at least 4 hours of sun. The 3” soft apricot-orange semi-double blooms appear continuously on 30” long upright stems above a pretty flattish rosette of blue-green leaves to 1’ wide and 4” high. The flowers retain their color the longest in part shade. A perennial Poppy from the hot and dry areas of Spain and Morocco, it’ll even self-sow in the cracks of a dry rock wall! You can forget to water it for weeks and it’ll still bloom Spring thru Fall. With average to rich soil and a bit of Summer water it will bloom even more. Tough, drought tolerant and not fussy about soil (give it some drainage).
