Papaver hybridum   Rough Poppy

Papaver hybridum Spain

This is a common poppy in continental Europe but an increasingly scarce plant in the U.K. The bluish violet anthers with hairy buds and and hairy fruits are identifying features.

We were lucky having accommodation in the countryside where this plant and many other interesting species were in a next door field.
