Papaver somniferum, Red Peony Type 30 June 2010 Papaver somniferum, Red Peony Type

This is another opium poppy bloom. It has the appearance of a peony at first look. It is growing along the morning glory trellis. This bloom is one of my favorites. They would look nice in a small patch, which I will try next year. This peony type has the black basal cross on the stem side of the flower.
