Papaver Nudicaule commonly known as ‘Iceland Poppy’ is a boreal flowering plant. It is also known as ‘Arctic Poppy’ and is native to Asian mountain areas north into arctic regions. Each plant features a clump of pinnately lobed basal leaves from which rise slender, leafless flower stems. The Iceland Poppy plant provides showy blossoms in late spring and early summer. Growing Iceland poppies in the spring bed is a great way to add delicate foliage and long-lasting flowers to the area. Very agreeable to the taste, the leaves are a good source of vitamin C.
