Oriental Poppy Royal Wedding, Papaver orientale 'Royal Wedding', has large, black seed capsule centers surrounded by dark purple stamens which enhance the 4-6" wide, white, papery blooms. 'Royal Wedding' has strong stems covered with fine "hair" which support the large blooms from late spring through early summer. Like many other poppies 'Royal Wedding' will go dormant after the bloom cycle is complete. Poppies are excellent cut flowers and can also be dried for floral arrangements. 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.
