Genus:  Papaver

The 4- to 6-inch-wide blooms of 'Flamenco Dancer' poppy stand out in late spring and early summer with their true red color and fanciful fringes. It is a sport of the popular 'Turkenlouis'. After the flowers fade, this perennial will go dormant, so plant it near neighbors that will fill the vacancy.

Care: 

Provide full sun and well-drained soil.

Propagation: 

Divide in late summer or early fall.
