I bought this one about a 1 1/2 years ago, I think at Annie's Annuals and it's just starting to bloom. Stunning plant even without blooms. Would love to get a name if anyone could help.

Sue,

My guess would be Glaucium corniculatum or Horned Poppy.

If you collect seed, keep me in mind. It is an annual and it might work in Zone 3.

I think Cowgirl is right. Christopher Grey-Wilson's book states in part: "The basal leaves, up to 20 cm (8 in) long, are pinnately-lobed into oblong lobes that are rather sharply toothed; all the leaves are glaucous and covered in short hairs." It is a stunning poppy isn't it.

Oh I absolutely love it! I will get more shots, especially now that more blooms are opening.
