Thank you all for your kind replies.I too had looked at seriously scarlet but on the couple of pics I saw it does seem far more red in colour than the one I saw.The picture was taken in this country,in staffordshire to be exact,and it was only the one flower,no others anywhere in the vicinity.Since I took the pic in 2011 I have not seen it elsewhere or indeed in the location I took its photo.I will buy some of the seriously scarlet seeds for this year and see what grows I think.I thought it was so lovely and would really like to grow it in the garden.I also looked at turkestania but that has white on the petals,Drama Queen seems very similar although it seems to have darker shading on the petals but I think I may get some of the seeds of that variety too.

My thanks to all of you for your answers,it is so nice that my first post has been answered by so many of you.I look forward to my time on the forum with you .

As a newcomer to the forum and some plants I wonder if anyone can tell me what variety this poppy is that I photographed a couple of summers back.
