Welsh Poppies have very pretty bowl-shaped flowers with four petals in yellow or orange from late spring to early autumn.
This plant grows best in areas with cool damp summers, (it does very well in our garden in southern Scotland).
In warmer, drier areas, the plant may appear to die during hot summers but will soon regenerate again from the base when conditions are more suitable.
The flowers are very popular with bees and hoverflies.
Welsh Poppies provide food for Bees and Hoverflies
