Freebase

  1. Papaver orientale

    Papaver orientale is a perennial flowering plant native to the Caucasus, northeastern Turkey, and northern Iran. Oriental poppies throw up a mound of finely cut, hairy foliage in spring. After flowering the foliage dies away entirely, a property that allows their survival in the summer drought of Central Asia. Late-developing plants can be placed nearby to fill the developing gap. Fresh leaves appear with autumn rains.
