Papaver orientale ‘Coral Reef’

Natural Breeding Brings Exclusive New Colour Break

Poppy ‘Coral Reef’ was produced when breeders continued the work of mother nature after apparently the bees had been active because a red flowered hybrid produced several plants of vivid coral pink. They produced a cultivar with large, ruffled blooms as delicate as tissue paper. Set against beautiful grey-green foliage the large vibrant flowers of exquiste coral pink have dark purple blotches at the base and are often 5 inches across. For these outstanding attributes Poppy ‘Coral Reef’ was chosen as the 2000

Thompson & Morgan Flower of the Year.

Seen at their dreamiest when grown in groups, they are the perfect addition to the Poppy Coral Reef flower border and the cottage garden.  

Poppy ‘Coral Reef’ grows to a height of 24-30 inches and therefore remains upright and tidy in the garden. Because it has been bred from seed, Poppy ‘Coral Reef’ has consistent vigour and brings a subtle and delightful contrast to any garden. Poppy ‘Coral Reef’  can be treated as a hardy perennial in zones 3-9.

These seeds are available from your local garden Centre that carries Thompson & Morgan Seeds or from the 2000 Thompson & Morgan Seed Catalogue.

Hetropappus meyendorfii ‘Blue Knoll’

The World’s first Blue Chrysanthemum look alike

‘Blue Knoll’ is similar to a blueBlue Knoll Mum chrysanthemum in habit, flower shape and size. ‘Blue Knoll’ is also extremely weather tolerant! With its Siberian background, ‘Blue Knoll’ remains bright and beautiful through torrential rains, early frosts and the first snows of winter! When little else is blooming, the profuse flowers of ‘Blue Knoll’ will provide colour in beds, borders,  and containers.

Flowering profusely, ‘Blue Knoll’ will form mounds (or knolls) 18 inches across and 12 inches high. Easy to germinate, ‘Blue Knoll’ can be treated as a hardy annual or a hardy biennial, depending on sowing time. Sow indoors during January/February to flower in October/November.
