poppy

As a newcomer to the forum and some plants I wonder if anyone can tell me what variety this poppy is that I photographed a couple of summers back.

    It's probably something Fizz, although I can't find its exact botanical name.

    It looks a bit like the poppy on the site below calle "seriously scarlet" but they have that in Thompson and Morgan but it doesn't look the same.

    There is a poppy with jagged edges like that alled Turkestania - or something a bit like that!  Maybe google red poppies and see if you recognise it among the offerings you get there?

    It may help to know where the photograph was taken- was it in this country?

    Having had a look around I think it might be a variety called 'Drama Queen,' although I can't say for sure as not all the images match the OP's photo.

    I forgot to say, the centre probably turns bluish, as in your photo, as the flower starts to fade.

    I've come across an old seed packet of a poppy called Burgundy Frills by Thompson and Morgan that looks very similar, but they don't have it anymore.

  • Hi all that is a lovely poppy .I have seeds for one called laurens grape that is just gorgeous.Does anyone have any tips for growing poppies.Should I start indoors in loo rolls so I dont disturb the roots or just sprinkle on the ground and hope for the best.I really want this plant to bloom for this spring,does anyone know if putting it in the fridge might be a good idea.                 Debra
