#876  Papaver orientale 'Allegro Dwarf'
Perennial/ Zone 3-9/ Height 16"/ Space 12"/ Sun/ Blooms late spring-early summer
Finely cut leaves form a clump from which arises plump buds that open to reveal crinkly scarlet flowers with black centers. A fleeting pleasure, but late May without these is impossible to imagine. Striking alongside yellow Daffodils and blue Hyacinths. May go dormant for summer.
