Sanguisorba Menziesii 'burnet' & Oriental Poppies.

Video_Garden(z3/4 Montreal)May 19, 2004

hi, i was wondering if it would be a nice idea to plant sanguisorba menziesii 'burnet' with some oriental poppies at the back of the border? i'm worried that the sanguisorba plant may cast too much shade with it's leaves and growth (sprawling habit), and stunt the oriental poppies with lack of sunlight before they bloom (is this a possibility? )both are supposed to bloom in early summer, so originally i thought it would be a nice combination. any thoughts or experiences?

Well don't plant red oriental poppies...... I hate red and dark pink together...... clashes like if you put it together in an outfit...... don't dress your plants like you wouldn't dress yourself...... a white oriental poppy or a salmon or pink would be good...... there's even raspberry colored that would be nice it would look like those flowers..... I don't think a little shade when young would hurt the poppy so long as it had sunlight through most of its growth........ most plants will stretch towards the sun and so long as it has enough sunlight to bloom it would be fine........ Do they bloom at the same time???? If they don't the blue pods would look nice with those pink blossoms...... :)
