With such an amazing range of hues available, the Oriental poppy family has something for everyone. And while the flowers may seem delicate and more suited to a cottage garden style, creating a tropical hot bed of color is easily done with some of the more vibrant specimens. If you want to create a tropical and exotic looking border, the best colors to use are those of red, orange, and yellow, with an added splash of purple if you wish. Depending on the other border planting you may have large gaps to fill in the spring, before many other tropical looking blooms have started to emerge. It is here that using Oriental poppies is ideal as they bloom easily and early in the summer season, providing some much needed color before the gardening year really gets started.

Pattys Plum is amazingly rich purple bloom, with a dark center and purple pollen granules to really make a border pop. Prince of Orange, as its name suggests, is a vibrant and intense orange, with its purple pollen contrasting against the amazing petals even more. Meanwhile, Brilliant offers a distinguished bloom of orangey red, while Beauty of Livermere will truly stun all visitors with its deep red petals. So if you’re creating a tropical border, then including Oriental poppy seeds is a fantastic way of ensuring that there is vibrant color at the start of the year. And with poppies foliage dying down after flowering, plants can be easily incorporated no matter how dense planting may be.
