plume poppy

17 Jun

This imposing plant can grow 6′-8′ tall and will grow just about anywhere, sun or light shade. Its deeply lobed leaves, grey-green on top and white on the bottom, are 10″-12″ at the base, tapering to just a few inches at the top. Its buds don’t so much flower as open to clusters of stamens, producing an airy, cloud-like effect.
