     plant in question

    Peony flowered opium poppy. Papaver somniferum. Save the seed and scatter around if you want more. They do not yield opium in this country as we do not have enough day length and heat.

    Not a wild flower in this country. This is probably a cultivar called pink chiffon.

    If you let the seed pod dry, the seeds store well and you can scatter them next spring where you want them.

    from the leaves, it looks like the wild double flowered opium poppies.
