Also known as White Prickly Poppy, it's range is from Wisconsin east to Massachusetts, south to FL, west to TX and north through Arkansas to Iowa.

It's habitat is usually waste places and roadsides.

These are very prickly, use gloves!!!
They also do not seem to like transplanting, and/or may take a long time to recover.
