Papaver orientalis 'Princess Victoria Louise'
Common Name: Oriental Poppy Family: Papaveraceae (The Poppy Family)

Papaver orientalis 'Princess Victoria Louise'
Zoom In Photo:

We do not grow many oriental poppies because they dislike our site with full blazing sun and wind, usually going dormant on us quite early. But, 'Princess Victoria Louise' is so gorgeous that we try to keep her around. Just get her home and into your garden. The peachy pink flowers have a bold basal black blotch on each petal.

Geogrpahical Origin:
Southwest Asia and Asia Minor

Meadows, usually in sub-alpine zones, but also on stony slopes in the lower mountain zone.
