The Opium Poppy, Papaver somniferum.
The Opium Poppy which is also known as Papaver somniferum occurs throughout the British Isles, either
as a garden escape or as a relic of cultivation. This Poppy has been widely cultivated throughout Europe
and Asia since about the second millenium BC. It flowers during July and August and has a very distinct
flower colour with a sage/mint green stem and leaves. Below is a beautiful original water colour painting.
