(Poppy) Papaver 'Helen Elizabeth' has large bowl-shaped, salmon-pink flowers with crinkled edges. The center of the flower is accented by a velvety-black seed head which is surrounded by dark purple stamens. The large blooms of 'Helen Elizabeth' appear in late spring-early summer and  are absolutely breathtaking. After they are done blooming, poppies will go dormant in mid-summer, so plant other perennials in front or nearby to fill in the gaps in the landscape. Deer and rabbit resistant.
