The plume poppy is a striking architectural plant, with tall upright stems and attractive grey to olive green, lacy, foliage. Holder of the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit (AGM), 'Kelway's Coral Plume' produces deep coral-pink flowers in summer. Plants are slow to get going and often barely grow in their first season, but once established, they can spread quite rapidly. If space permits, plants look best when allowed to develop freely into large clumps, especially when used as a feature in the same way as pampas grass.
