(Oriental Poppy) Enjoy beautiful spring color with the blooms of Papaver 'Harlem'. This elegant reblooming poppy starts its show in late May to early June, then it rests for the summer as it waits to put on a repeat performance in fall. 'Harlem' Oriental Poppy has heavily ruffled petals with upright blooms that are a striking shade of deep burgundy-red accented by a dark black eye. 'Harlem' Oriental Poppy grows best in a full sun location and can tolerate drought conditions once established, though it flourishes in rich, moist, well-drained soils. 'Harlem' grows 28 inches tall and has foliage that lasts longer than many other poppy varieties. Deer and Rabbits tend to avoid this plant.

Arrived Healthy Review by Debbie | Zone: 7b
Plant arrived healthy in spring 2010. It has grown, no flowers (not unusual in the first year). Hopefully it will bloom beautifully next spring. (Posted on 8/24/2010)
