About Poppy Seeds - Moroccan Orange

Papaver rupifragum

Seed Type Open Pollinated Seed
Plant Type Spanish

Moroccan Orange Poppy Seeds belong to clump-forming, short-lived perennials that showcase saucer-shaped apricot-orange flowers, measuring six inches across. These vibrant blooms grace the garden from late spring into fall, providing months of color, particularly when deadheaded. The flowers elegantly perch atop upright, wiry stems, appearing to float above rosettes of gray-green, toothed leaves. Known for its remarkable toughness and ease of cultivation, Moroccan Poppy effortlessly enhances the visual appeal of rock or dry gardens with long-lasting color.
