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.
