    Description

Papaver nudicaule - Iceland Poppy

This is a listing for a pack of 1000 seeds of this perennial poppy.

This is a showy short lived perennial member of the poppy family that, despite its name, does not come from Iceland at all.  It is native to the harsh Steppe of Asia and as a consequence is one of the hardiest members of the poppy family. 

The plant grows to 60 cm tall and its flowers come in a wide range of colours.  The flowering period is late Spring and most of the Summer.  Where the summer temperatures get too hot, the plant may either stop flowering or die back (as per the oriental poppy - but this time it may not come back).  In hotter areas this is grown as a biennial, sown in early autumn for flowering the following spring and summer until the higher temperatures stop it.  If the heads are allowed to go to seed, it will re-stock itself in any given area and fresh plants will appear in the autumn and start flowering the following spring.  Where it survives as a perennial, it will likely live for 3 years or so, but should naturalise under these conditions too.

The plant is hardy in Zones 2 - 10 and is suitable for pot culture as well as growing in open ground.  It adapts to a wide range of habitat thriving equally in poor or rich soils.
