|P. orientale root divisions. 12.27.14|
Back to the oriental poppy, P. orientale, these were raised by seeds planted 13 years ago. They became a big clump. I wanted to move it to the Battleground border. When I dug it up, it separated into big roots, like horse radish. This has been a mild winter. They have soem green leaves even now.
They are already dug up. I separated and planted each root section. If they grow, they grow. If not, I know this doesn't work.
I did read that oriental poppies can be propagated via root cuttings. Image is this poppy clump, Ma 22, 2013.
