These hardy perennial, annual and biennial plants
are native of eastern Asia, North America and Europe.
They are commonly known as Poppies.
Their foliage is mostly basal; the leaves are coarsely toothed
and grow up to 6 inches long.

Their height ranges from 1 to 4 feet
and they produce pretty single or double flowers atop long, thin stems.
The flowers have glistening petals and they grow from 2 to 6 inches across.
They come in all colors except blue.

  1. P. nudicaule, the Iceland Poppy, comes in yellow, coral and pink.

  2. The leaves of P. somniferum, the Opium Poppy, are blue-green and the flowers come in shades of white, pink, red or purple.

  3. P. alpinum, the Alpine Poppy, are great for the rock garden, as they only grow about 6 inches high.

  4. P. rhoeas, the Shirley Poppy, Corn Poppy, Flanders Poppy, or Field Poppy,
    comes in scarlet, salmon, pink and white. Picking off the dead flowers will increase blooming,
    but prevents the formation of seed heads valued for drying.
