    yes its a poppy paeony had seeds from garden news this weekimage

  • It's an opium poppy. Very distinctive because of its grey "cabbagy" leaf. They selfseed and once you have them they will keep coming.

    We have them in pink, red, mauve, single semi-double and double. If they grow where they are not wanted they are very easy to pull out
