Papaver nudicaule ‘Ballerina Mixture’

Papaver nudicaule ‘Ballerina Mixture’

Iceland Poppy

A very good colour range with masses of medium sized flowers in softer pastels with an upright and compact habit. Days to Germinate: 14-21. Iceland poppies are easily grown in any sunny garden bed. Broadcast seeds in situ during late autumn and winter for flowering from late winter until early summer. Iceland poppies are both showy in the garden and great in a vase. Poppies are generally best sown direct but we find that starting Iceland Poppies in autumn in trays can improve success and allow you to start them early for winter colour.
