Macleaya cordata

The plume poppy, Macleaya cordata, is standing well over 6ft, providing a wonderful feathery focal point to the Herbaceous Island Beds and a lovely counterpoint to the swaying wands of the giant scabious, Cephalaria gigantea. The airy, salmon-pink flowers are always being scaled by shiny plack pollen beetles.
The gorgeous blue-green, deeply lobed and irregularaly margined foliage is also a delight, especially after rain, when the leaf surface encourages the water droplets to collect into shiny round gems.
