Oriental poppies

Do not confuse with poppies, oriental poppies can reach 1.5 meters and offer manifold colours. Years of natural selection have created shades of poppies unique to Giverny.

Where to see them?
Claude Monet has also painted them, in 1883 “Vase au pavots” and “Pavots dans un vase de Chine”.

How to cultivate them?
Like poppies, they reseed themselves and grow alone. We just have to remove the dead plants after seeding in order to keep the garden clean.
