Oriental Poppy Queen Alexander, Papaver orientale 'Queen Alexander', features beautiful, bright, salmon-pink blooms that will create a spectacular display in your perennial garden. Papaver 'Queen Alexander' has 4-5" wide flowers that appear on strong stems from late spring through early summer. The petals of 'Queen Alexander' have a crepe-paper appearance with a very soft texture and a large black seed capsule center, surrounded by dark purple stamens. These perennials are best planted near other plants since they will go dormant after completing their bloom cycle. Oriental poppies will grow in any open, sunny position in a good, deep loamy soil. They are of easiest culture and require very little care. During the dry spells in the early season, they should be watered occasionally, but after they have finished blooming and the leaves begin to die down, they should be let alone for the roots seem to enjoy a thorough baking during the hottest months. Oriental poppies should be mulched in the wintertime. This mulch does not have to be removed in the spring for the leaves soon cover it. After the plants are satisfactorily situated they should be allowed to remain undisturbed for a number of years.
