Scrumptious. Mine is more salmon-tinged than some of the others pictured here.

I have had this poppy in my garden for years. Reliably comes back. Beautiful. I support the blossoms with a peony cage.

Delicate poppy, very nice.

This is a spectacular plant to watch as its crepe paper petals unfold into blossoms the size of dinner plates. Fragile, strong and colourful. If taken care of properly it will bloom in early summer and again in the fall.
