The common poppy (Papaver rhoeas) is an annual wildflower characterised by striking papery blooms. The seeds of the common poppy can lie dormant for up to 80 years, germinating once the soil is disturbed. The blooms of the common poppy typically last from late spring to early summer. These poppies require almost no maintenance when they are planted in their hardiness zones, and they are great for naturalising. They also work well in garden beds, cottage gardens, borders, and pollinator gardens.
The poppy is a symbol that has meant peace, death and sleep. When used on tombstones, poppies represent eternal sleep. In The Wizard of Oz, it's referenced when a mystical poppy field could make Dorothy and her friends sleep forever.
