Papaver rhoeas is a cornfield annual, typically found growing in cultivated arable land and roadside verges. It bears scarlet, single flowers, each petal often marked at its base with a black blotch. It's ideal for growing in annual wildflower meadows and also works well when dotted among herbaceous perennials in ornamental borders. It's extremely popular with bumblebees.
Papaver rhoeas makes a good cut flower if gathered early in the morning, just as the green sheath is falling from the petals, but the blooms don't last long. It thrives in full sun in well-drained soil, and self-seeds readily.
