Deciding upon the name to use on BPotD for some commonly-cultivated garden plants can sometimes be a challenge. If looking to source this Iceland poppy, you would likely be better off searching for some variation of Papaver nudicaule and ‘Champagne Bubbles Pink’ or ‘Champage Bubbles’ (Pink). I usually like to sidestep these names that are confused in the horticultural trade, except for instances when there’s a good story–like today.
