No flower is quite as lovely as Iceland poppy when the sun shines through the chiffon petals. These orange, pale pink, yellow, and white blossoms will light up your garden in spring. They’re fairly drought tolerant, too! A short-lived perennial in USDA zones 2-8, although it is usually grown as an annual. Plants grow up to 12″-24″ tall, 12″ wide, and produce flowers that bloom from spring to early summer. Prefers full to partial shade exposure. Attracts pollinators and is deer resistant.

Outdoors: Sow 4-6 weeks before your average last frost date, or early to mid-fall for bloom the following spring. Optimal soil temperature is 50°- 60°F. In mild climates, sow in late summer to early fall for winter and spring bloom.
Indoors: Not recommended. Sow 6-8 weeks before your average last frost date. Does not transplant well, so sow in biodegradable pots that can be planted directly in the ground.
