Papaver nudicaule ‘Australis’

Papaver nudicaule ‘Australis’

Iceland Poppy


Australis is a superior new strain of Iceland poppy with extra large flowers on strong 50-60cm tall stems. It will give a good mixture of colours, white, pink, coral, red, yellow and all the shades between. Poppies are generally best sown direct but we find that starting Iceland Poppies in autumn in trays is the best way.
