Description

Height x Spread:  200cm x 200cm

Highly valued for its stunning and fragrant display of large snowy-white flowers like super-sized poppies the size of small saucers, that open from chunky buds over attractively cut blue-green foliage. 

Ever so pretty, this is a great specimen perennial for a very sunny spot in fertile, well-drained soil where it will flower from midsummer through to autumn if safeguarded from cold winds.  Applying a deep protective mulch in early November will help a lot.  A sunny, warm walled garden or courtyard would be perfect, but choose the location carefully as it does not like to be moved.  On the other hand if it likes the spot it will spread.
