Corn Poppy, Field Poppy, Flanders Poppy, or Red Poppy
Single red flowers - the common field poppy. 60cm.
Once a common sight in cornfields, this brilliant red field poppy is perfect for a sunny wildflower garden or meadow, where it will self-seed freely. The four petals are vivid red, most commonly with a black spot at their base. It is a variable annual plant that can germinate when the soil is disturbed. The corn poppy has become associated with wartime remembrance in the 20th century, especially during Remembrance day
