Please ID Papaver __________???

Dearborn Heights, MI

I bought this poppy at a nursery today. It was the only one on the table without a tag, but all the other ones said Oriental Poppy Mixed Color. I have other P.Orientale and none of them look like this when they came up. Can anyone help?

Could be somniferum, color is right and leaf shape is close.

Thank you for your response . Thats kinda what I was thinking, except one thing, there are some very fine hairs on the leaves. I thought that p.somni didnt get hairs like orientale,rhoeas etc. Ive never grown p.somni, so i dont know personally if at this young of an age, maybe they have very fine hairs?

I checked the leaves on some of my young soms and they have no hairs. Perhaps there will be something more definitive later.

Is it possibly a "beauty of livermere"? From what I read, its a larger p.orientale. If anyone else grown this strain please respond.

Can P.Orientale hybrid with P.Somniferum?
