about this item

Oriental poppies (Papaver) are long used by gardeners in a range of landscape situations. Planting poppies is simple and rewarding when their blooms appear. The clumps will become larger each year but will never be invasive. They can be forced indoors with special treatment. They also make for stunning cut flowers, but you will have to sear the ends of freshly cut stems with a match. As they have appeared on ravaged battlefields, they have come to symbolize death and rebirth. The red poppy symbolizes fallen warriors and commemorates Veteran's Day in the United States. It is often known by the common name Flanders Poppy. This red beauty creates a carpet of color when massed.
