Iconic , knockout red flowers with black centers, an excellent choice for mass planting. Also called the Common Poppy and Flanders Poppy, in reference to the post World War I poem “In Flanders Fields,” and the flushes of poppies that emerged in the old battlefields. A stunner with varying bloom times depending on your zone. Annual but will likely naturalize and re-seed itself. The seed pods are used in dry flower arrangements, and beautiful unto themselves.
