I have masses of Prince of Orange and I am looking for a lighter orange to go with it. How does Brilliant compare?

I wish I could help. I think I have both, and I cannot really tell them apart. As a beginner, I bought several poppies. I lost some over the years, and today I have 2 large masses of bright orange. I think one is PoO and one is Brilliant. I am going to plant Picotee (sp?) for contrast, white with orange edges. I hope they take.

I like Picotee also, but I haven't been able to find any plants. i quit planting the bare roots; they just wouldn't grow for me.
