I.D This Poppy Please?

SheleenSheleen Posts: 51
I think I mentioned that since the building work has finished on our house, I have poppies sprouting everywhere - many look like pink pom-poms, and then this one popped open...In real life, its slightly more lilac/mauve in colour - but very pale nonetheless. I have seeds of "Blackberry Fizz" that I only put down this year... but have never seen a 'fizz' variety this pale - does anyone know what variety this is?
Many Thanks.

    Papaver somniferum..opium poppies... very promiscuous depending on the bees, there is likely to be some variation.

    Thank you both... I'm hoping to save the seeds and sow more for next year - Having these poppies sprouting everywhere is the silver lining in the grey cloud of having to have so much building work done :)
