PAPAVER: Delicate blossoms of Poppies have enchanted us for generations. Large paper-thin petals form a bowl around their ornamental centers. The blossoms are a favorite for butterflies, hummingbirds and bees. Sunlight makes their translucent petals positively glow with color.
Papaver somniferum "Lilac Pompom" Huge double pompom lilac blooms. This plant grows about a yard high and the flowers are about 5 inches across. To me the Pompom poppies look more like peonies than the peony poppies do. It is a great cut flower.
