Iceland Poppies are a wonderful source of exceptionally beautiful colors. The Poppy flowers shimmer in the sun, and their petals look like crinkled silk. Easy-to-grow from Iceland Poppy seeds, these blooms come in an array of colors. Measuring 4 - 5 inches across, these single Poppy blooms open in shades of white, yellow, orange, pink, rose, and red as well as bi-colors! Iceland Poppies put on a fabulous garden show, and they are among the best for cutting, due to their durable stems and erect flower position.
Iceland Poppies are used extensively in the southeast by sowing the wildflower seeds in the fall to create a lavish spring display, but the plants are unable to live through the hot summer that follows. In cooler climates, Iceland Poppy plants perform like a perennial for 2 - 3 years. Prefer full sun and a fertile, well-drained soil. Early flowers during cool weather will be the largest.
