Description

Papaver 'King Kong' is a must-have in any cottage garden, showcasing large, deep red flowers that sit atop dense and robust dark green foliage. This hardy and clump-forming perennial graces the garden with big blousy blooms during late spring and early summer. As the season progresses, the foliage dies back completely by mid-summer, leaving space in the garden.

For a seamless and continuous garden display, consider planting 'King Kong' among wispy grasses or later flowering perennials that will gracefully fill the gaps left behind. The scarlet flowers of Poppy 'King Kong' bring a vibrant splash of colour to sunny borders and make stunning cut flowers. Its attractive dark green leaves, covered with coarse silvery hairs, add to its overall charm and appeal.

                        - Dig a hole to the required depth. You can find this required depth for each type of bulb, tuber or root in the growing guides.

                        - Depth is measurement of space between the soil line and top of bulb or bare root.

                        - Set the bulbs or bare root in place, pointed side or sprout side upward.

                        - Cover the bulbs by replacing the soil and water thoroughly.
