Binomial name: Papaver nudicaule
Common name: Iceland Poppy
The Iceland Poppy is a boreal flowering plant. Native to subpolar regions of Europe, Asia and North America, and the mountains of Central Asia (but not in Iceland), Icelandpoppies are hardy but short-lived perennials, often grown as biennials, that yield large, papery, bowl-shaped, lightly fragrant flowers supported by hairy, 30 cm, curved stems among feathery blue-green foliage 3-15 cm long. Flowering is from May to July. The wild species blooms in white or yellow. All parts of this plant are likely to be poisonous.
