Poppy Botanical Post Card

Opium Poppy Paper set on French Paper 3.5 x 5 JPEG

There is just something about the beauty of poppies, commonly known as the Black Opium Poppy,  Papaver somniferum, or the breadseed poppy. This is a species of a flowering plant in the family – Papaveraceae. It is the species of plant from which opium and poppy seeds are derived and is a valuable ornamental plant, grown in gardens. Its native range is probably the eastern Mediterranean, but is now obscured by ancient introductions and cultivation.

The Black Opium Poppy is a gorgeous purple that is so deep in color, they are almost black. See it in its natural state. They offer such a beautiful addition to the garden.

  2. Poppies are one of my favourite flowers, there’s something so special about their delicate and fragile petals, isn’t there? And if course I love to see bees and bumblebees gorging themselves on them! 😄💕
