This interesting flowers looks like a Papaver somniferum - an Opium poppy.Â Most of these poppies have single blooms (meaning the flower has only a single row of petals).Â This one is a double flowering poppy - multiple petals.Â Blue-green seed pods will follow the flowers.Â These seed pods can be dried and are fantastic additions to dried flower arrangements. Be careful not to ingest any part of this plant - it will cause stomach upset.
