Own a small ranch in NW Montana. The property is a jungle of plants/flowers. I can tell you just about anything horsey, still learning about plants😄

Very beautiful . One of my favorites. This is papavar orientale not opium. Opium poppy has smothe grey leaves and is an upright not rosette.@SikoMa

Have these got opium in them or just the name because I thought "they" made them ineffective.

SikoMa

I have absolutely no clue @Sussanah. I've never had these before, and know nothing about them. Maybe @gjones @jeatacake @mrsflowerpot @mikethegardener would know the answer to your question above?🤔🤔🤔

There are loads of them in our garden & I've always known them as Japanese poppies over here. I absolutely love them & ours are flowering like crazy right now 💝👍

They look like opium poppies to us. The opium is derived from the sap in the pods not the seeds. The seeds are used to make poppy seed cake, loaf, bread etc. My grandma had them for years. When the pods dried my sister and I ( we were kids) thought it was great fun to shake all the seeds out of the dried pods. My grandma of course didn't appreciate it too much. @jeatacake @SikoMa @mrsflowerpot @mikethegardener
