Papaveracae > Papver dubium var. ,

P. dubium is an annual with pinnate leaves around 7-15cm in length and 3-5 cm wide that develop as a basal rosette. The flowers are around 3 cm in diameter and can be orange-red through to a pinkish colour.



Prefers a well-drained sandy loam soil in a sunny position. Does not do well on wet clay soils but succeeds in most other soils. This species is possibly more tolerant of poor soils than P. rhoeas. Plants usually self-sow freely when growing in suitable conditions so long as the soil surface is disturbed. When growing in cereal fields, poppies have been known to decrease the yields of nearby cereal plants. Members of this genus are rarely if ever troubled by browsing deer or rabbits.


Seed can be sown directly onto the surface of soil that has been recently disturbed.
