Papaver alpinum is an 'Old World' poppy native to high mountains of Central Europe. This delightful plant is like a miniature version of the Iceland Poppy. With much divided leaves and plenty of flowers, in shades of pink, apricot, yellow, orange and white throughout summer.
A prolific bloomer with single, red, cup-shaped flowers that each have a black blotch in the centre, this poppy sends up two dozen or more lovely little flowers that look just like ladybirds. Every garden needs a poppy and this one is an exceptional annual. They are a delight to grow and very easy from seed.
Papaver dubium is a less well known annual species of poppy. This native wildflower is widespread throughout Europe and America and is a good choice for naturalising in a meadow garden. It is pollinated by insects, particularly bees and hoverflies.
With the classic poppy markings, a stunning scarlet colour with clear black blotches on each petal, this titchy poppy is quite unique in the poppy world; the inner petals are not flat but stay upright. This difference has earned it the common name of The Tulip Poppy.
