Although they don’t last long, Iceland poppies are such a beautiful and whimsical flower that they are worth their trouble. To harvest, cut in cracking bud stage and sear the end with a flame. The bud will “pop” open in the vase and unfold its crinkly tissue-paper like petals. They are fascinating. These are best fall-planted under a protective cover/tunnel or planted early in the spring, a good month before your last frost date. I grow these from plugs/transplants.

COMPANIONS

Poppies look great alone in a vase, with room to show off their curves and quirks. But they also mix well with other spring flowers such as ranunculus, anemones, tulips, and daffodils.
