. Large Oriental Poppy PAP AVER ORIENTALE LARGE ORIENTAL POPPIES These are the regal representatives of this popular genus, growing 3 to 3J feet high, and far surpassing in splendor of hloom all the annual and biennial kinds, and for a gorgeous display of rich and brilliant coloring nothing equals them during their period of flowering in May and June, and whether planted singly or in masses their large flowers and freedom of bloom renders them conspicuous in any position. They are of the easiest culture; almost any kind of soil suits them, but they do best in deep, rich loam; set the plants out in fall or early spring before the first of May—give them water occa- sionally during dry spells in the early part of the season; mulch with stable litter in fall; and they will increase in size and florifeiousness for several years. After flowering the plants die back, usually reap- pearing in early September, or as soon as the weather gets cool. During this resting period care should be taken in cultivating the beds that the roots are not disturbed, any disturbance at this time usually resulting in failure.
