Poppy, Opium (Papaver somniferum)

Poppy, Opium – Papaver somniferum

Poppy, Opium – Papaver somniferum – Perhaps it would be wise not to conduct any ‘medicinal’ experiments with this plant, although we are assured that this is a ‘look-a-like’ poppy and not the source of true opium! However, it is a lovely flower for the garden in shades of dusky pink and purple. The seeds can be sprinkled on bread and the seed heads are useful for decorative flower arrangements.
