Red Poppy Wildflower

Red Poppy (Papaver Rhoeas) - The Red Poppy is one of the most popular wildflowers in all the world, and it easily establishes from Poppy seeds. It is also known as Shirley Poppy, Flanders Poppy, American Legion Poppy, (the red poppy is the symbol of the American Legion, handed out for Memorial Day), and in England, Corn Poppy. This wildflower is native to most of all Europe and North Africa. Growing Poppies from seed is such a rewarding experience. Red Poppies are favorites with gardeners because they grow so successfully from wildflower seed, and they transform a dull boring landscape into an intense display of gorgeous red blooms. Since they are annuals, they grow quickly from flower seeds each spring and drop new Red Poppy wildflower seed in the fall.
