    Features large, 6-inch-diameter plum-colored flowers with a blackberry center and red and gold rings inside. The flowers have the consistency of crepe paper, and the color is unusual for oriental poppies. The flowers are eye-catching even at a distance of 100 feet.

    The large flowers stand about 3 feet tall, and the plant is hardy in USDA zones 3 to 8. It grows best in full sun in well-drained soil.
