Introducing the majestic Papaver orientale Forncett Summer, a towering beauty with vibrant salmon pink petals. This remarkable poppy originates from Forncett St. Mary in Norfolk, England. Its petals boast intricate fringing, keeping a bold, yet delicate, appearance. At the base of each petal, you'll find small black markings, adding a touch of intrigue. For a captivating contrast, consider planting Forncett Summer near May Night Salvia, or Allium Globemaster. The combination of the bright salmon pink poppy alongside the deep hues of purple will create a visually stunning display that is sure to capture attention.
