Garden Flowers for Spring Weddings- Poppies

One of the most romantic and ethereal flowers is the poppy. Delicate petals, thin as tissue paper, flutter and dance like butterflies!
That romantic, delicate appeal is what makes the poppy a wonderful flower for weddings!
The preferred cultivar for cut flowers is the the Iceland poppy (Papaver nudicaule). I grow a variety  called Meadow Pastels from seeds started in late fall. The flowers bloom from late March through May. Because of their delicate nature, poppies are at their best when they are purchased from a locally grown source. 
Or even better- when they are grown with your wedding day in mind!
