Springtime is traditionally bulb time. This Iceland Poppy might make you believe that springtime is Poppy time! Beautiful clear yellow blooms explode from fat flower buds in April and continue their show to early summer. Spring Fever Yellow Iceland Poppy is perennial and equally at home in the garden bed as in a container. The billowy blooms would pair well with other spring favorites as tulips or early summer bloomers like Hardy Geranium.

Papavers form nice compact mounds of slightly fuzzy leaves. From this mound the flower stem rises up to 12 inches, making this plant great for the front of a garden border or in a container.

Papaver nudicaule are native to Sub-Arctic  North America and Asia despite its common name Iceland Poppy. This hardy perennial is a great attractor of pollinators in the late spring garden. Spring Fever Yellow Iceland Poppy is bothered by few pests or diseases and is deer resistant.

Spring Fever Yellow Iceland Poppy Care

Iceland poppies appreciate well drained soil that is on the drier side. They will benefit from a balanced slow release fertilizer as growth starts in the Spring. The pH should be neutral between 6.0 - 7.0. Full sun to partial shade will keep them happy with the most blooms.

Deadheading of Iceland poppies will help it to keep blooming later in the season. Papaver nudicaule is classified as a tender perennial or sometimes even as a biennial. This means that it sets seed in the second year after blooming. Cutting off these blooms before they can mature into seed will trick the plant into forming more flowers. Clean up of old foliage can be left until very early spring when the new growth just starts to show. This is not only a good way to help see where the plants are in the spring so they are not damaged, but to also give any seedlings a chance to grow. Any unwanted seedlings are easily weeded early in the spring.

Spring Fever Yellow Iceland Poppy Spacing

With a height of 10-12 inches and a spread of 6- 8 inches Iceland poppies can be placed quite close together. Spacing of 6 inches will give a full look that is dramatic in the best way possible. Container grown poppies can be placed right next together to act as a great filler plant.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
