Papaver nudicaule ‘Matador’
12-18" tall with 3-6" silky blooms of brilliant scarlet in spring. Plants are short-lived, 2-3 years, but reseed reliably in the garden. This is the only type of poppy that is suitable for cut flowers, and they also work nicely in pots for indoor use. If you like poppies, you will want to try these out! The flowers (of all Iceland Poppy varieties) are so delectable that we have always sold out each season. Full sun. Zones 2-7.
