Papaver radicatum, the Arctic Poppy, is one of the northernmost flowering plants (angiosperms) in the World, and can be seen north of the 82nd latitude, and on the Nunavut coat of arms. Arctic poppy and its subgroups have a circumpolar distribution in arctic climates. Poppies bloom in June-July with bright yellow or white flowers.
