Papaver 'King Kong' is a must-have in any cottage garden, showcasing large, deep red flowers that sit atop dense and robust dark green foliage. This hardy and clump-forming perennial graces the garden with big blousy blooms during late spring and early summer. As the season progresses, the foliage dies back completely by mid-summer, leaving space in the garden.

For a seamless and continuous garden display, consider planting 'King Kong' among wispy grasses or later flowering perennials that will gracefully fill the gaps left behind. The scarlet flowers of Poppy 'King Kong' bring a vibrant splash of colour to sunny borders and make stunning cut flowers. Its attractive dark green leaves, covered with coarse silvery hairs, add to its overall charm and appeal.
