orange scarlet poppy

known as the oriental papaver, the vibrant orange bloom makes any garden exotic.   the flowers dont last long, but they return year after year – mine have just bloomed and look amazing. flowers are not only beautiful to look at, but help nature generally –  Oriental Poppies attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.

my garden is blooming with colour, roses, camellias, jasmine, wisteria, poppies, nasturtium, campanula – remember my garden is tiny, the size of a bedroom front and back, but with some clever planting, you can have flowers all year round.
