Oriental poppies are rarely planted in containers and perform much better in the garden. For best results grow in a well-drained soil, as plants will not tolerate wet soils in winter, which can rot the fleshy tap roots and crowns. They’re happy in alkaline, acid or neutral soil. Plant in full sun (at least 8 hours) for optimal blooms.

Oriental poppies hold their large flowers on strong hairy stems. However, they may need the help of a plant support to keep them upright. A poppy flower will last for about 10 days but plants will have a second flush of flowers if they’re cut back. Allow oriental poppies to set seed and the plant will not have enough energy to produce more flowers.

Once poppy flowers have gone over the foliage also dies back. The foliage will have a second lease of life in August.  Plant poppies alongside low-growing perennials that will fill the gap in July when the foliage dies back. Plants should be cut right back to ground level in autumn.


Sorry, we do not ship outside the U.S. or to Hawaii due to agricultural restrictions.

We guarantee safe arrival of healthy bulbs, that varieties will be true-to-name, and will grow if planted as instructed, subject to the limitations described in our Shipping and Returns Policy.

We begin shipping our bulbs in mid-February through Spring. Despite what you may have heard, Spring planting of bulbs is not a bad thing, and in fact, there are many advantages to planting in Spring. Visit our Spring Planting page to learn more. Upon arriving, your bulbs and most of your perennials may show signs of growth such as green leaves and sprouts - this is okay and transportation during this time should not harm the plants.

All bulbs and perennials should be planted in your garden as soon as possible to ensure the best success. If you must delay planting, open the bags to permit air circulation and place them out of direct sunlight in a cool, well-ventilated room. Do not place the bulbs where they can freeze. If you have the space, storing the bulbs in the refrigerator is another excellent way to “hold them” prior to planting. If you choose this method of storing your bulbs, be sure not to store fruit with them, as this is detrimental to bulbs.

Plant outdoors when the ground is no longer frozen and the conditions have improved for your zone.

Hoping for a next year bloom

My Orange Glow Poppy did not bloom this year but I have purchased many items through the Lily Pad over the years and am hopeful they will bloom next year.

Oriental Poppy Review

I ordered five Oriental poppies. The price was very reasonable, and the size of the plants were the largest I've ever received. Overall, they arrived in good condition, but two of them were starting to show a bit of rot which seems almost unavoidable when shipping them. Despite endlessly damp, wet conditions, two of them have already taken hold and broken through the soil. I haven't checked the other three as of yet.
