|Papaver commutatum 'Ladybird'
|Papaver rhoeas 'Fairy Wings' - surprising greenish-yellow pollen.
|The perennial P. paucifoliatum; this has been the only flower so far on the bits I brought from Colesbourne and in some way the single flower accentuates the intensity of the orange colour.
|My favourite: Pam and Sibylle's pure white P. somniferum, my plant of the year 2011.
|It combines well with other plants - Anthemis 'Tinpenny Sparkle' and Heuchera 'Raspberry Ripple'
|Less welcome, the weedy but demurely pretty Papaver dubium, of which I have pulled out thousands of plants during the course of the spring and summer.
