Those who think that all poppies are one hit wonders are in for a big surprise - and its name is Harlem! This unique Oriental Poppy starts out like most of its kind by blooming beautifully in early summer. But then later in the season it blooms again, showering your garden with an encore of vivid crimson! Their massive blossoms and ruffled petals make this poppy a living classic that is perfect for sunny gardens. It can reach 28 inches in height and boasts lush green foliage to complement its burgundy blooms. Best of all you won't have to worry about your poppies getting munched by rabbits or deer since they find them unsavory. While Harlem prefers rich, well-drained soil, it tolerates poor soil quite well, opening up a world of possibility for those of us with less than perfect ground to work with. Water this gem only during the hottest part of the season. Thrives best in zones 3-7.
