Papaver atlanticum ‘Flore Pleno’ (syn. Papaver rupifragum subsp. atlanticum ‘Flore-Pleno’ ) is a real tough poppy with blue-green hairy leaves in rosettes and flower stems up to 50-60 cm; large, apricot-orange semi double flowers all summer long!
Drought and cold resistant, probably only a spot with bad drainage would make it disappear. You will get around a few seedlings once it’s in your garden but it forms a tap root so it is best to share seeds with your friends.
Germination: sown in the fall outdoors or in the spring after cold-moist stratification.
