Iceland Poppies

These poppies liked the cool days of April and May,  though they are still flowering now in August with 90 plus temperatures. They get morning sun and are in the shade the rest of the day. I do have to water them daily.

Here they are paired with violas which like a similar environment.

These poppies will reseed themselves if the stocks are left to dry. The seed pod is on the end of the stem and is visible when the flower petals fall off. They come in different colors. I had pink, red, yellow, and orange.


This flower is one of my new favorites. It is very hardy and blooms all summer.
They come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes.

The center of the flower comes in different varieties also. A flower within a flower!

They fill up a flower bed quickly. They are also deer resistant and insect tolerant. These flowers also reseed themselves for the following year.
