What type of poppy is this please. Red frilled petals with dark mauve inside.
Thanks but does it have a name, growing many Papaver Somniferum but all different like danish flag, cannot find this one.
Here is one that looks similar: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/56550/ But if it's something that was grown from seed it may not be a particular named variety, could just be part of the natural variation in how the species can look.
Note the huge variation in flower form in the photos posted, and all claimed to be the same cultivar! This proves the point ecrane3 made that seed from named varieties will not usually come true (i.e. will not have the characteristics of the parent plant).
Thanks guys for that link, that was naughty nineties poppy a bit fuller, my daughter sent me pic of hers and from that link she has just managed to identify it Drama Queen, and they are on this site lol but I didn't know what I was looking for. I grew mine and hers from seed you are right they are both quite different. Many many thanks for your help, posted photos of both for you to see :)
