Plant Features

There is nothing lovelier than an elegant red poppy, swaying in the breeze, surrounded by colorful friends, and the Spring Fever Red Papaver delivers on this front. Appearing in a bright red burst that stands in wonderful contrast to its sunny yellow center - with papery petals, it's subtly fragrant and perfect in a rock garden, front or mid border or in containers. These also make excellent cut flowers so be sure to bring the drama indoors! Papaver is an excellent source of nectar for bees and wild birds eat the seeds once the flower heads dry down. Deer and rabbit tend to overlook them while browsing.
