Poppies, revered for their uncommonly pretty shape and layers of delicate petals, add a gorgeous pop of bright color to the landscape or indoor arrangements. With this new variety, you'll see customers fall in love all over again with exotic poppies. Unique in both form and color, Picotee dazzles in the garden or border with huge 4-6" flowers of silky white. The broad, ruffled edges of each poppy are accented with a delicate line of apricot-coral, giving the blooms a very special appearance that gardeners and landscapers will love. Picotee is a free-flowering plant with a vigorous habit.
