Hi. Could someone tell me what sort of poppy this is please? We have it at the front of our garden. Someone ripped the head off over night but it has lots of buds luckily. 

Ok upload not working this morning.  It's a pink pom pom looking variety. Like ruffled pink tissue paper.

    Has it got grey leaves? If so it will be an opium poppy (Papaver somniferum)

    Hi Buttercupdays

    Thank but I have now done a bit of googling and it appears it is actually called a 'pom pom' poppy or latin - Papaver
