Iceland Poppies, Papaver nudicaule, the most popular of poppies, will transform your winter landscape into a breathtakingly attractive honey bee heaven!
Poppies are a super source of pollen for our honey bees, where they dust themselves by rolling between the stamens in delight! Plant them from April in Autumn temperatures – the bees love ’em. And they flower just when bees need a winter nibble.
Planted early in the season – they provide blooms that will keep appearing right through to late spring.
