Papaver nudicaule, commonly known as the Iceland poppy, is a species of flowering plant in the Papaveraceae family. It is native to subpolar regions of Europe, Asia, and North America, including Iceland, Greenland, and parts of Canada and the United States.

The Iceland poppy is known for its delicate, papery flowers that come in a range of colors, including white, yellow, orange, pink, and red. The flowers typically have four petals and are borne on slender stems above a basal rosette of leaves.

Iceland poppies are popular ornamental plants in gardens and landscapes due to their vibrant colors and graceful appearance. They are often grown as annuals or biennials, though they can sometimes behave as short-lived perennials in milder climates. Hardy in zones 2-7.

In addition to their ornamental value, Iceland poppies are sometimes used in traditional medicine for their mild sedative properties. However, like many members of the Papaveraceae family, they contain alkaloids that can be toxic if ingested in large quantities, so caution should be exercised when handling them.
