Papaver glaùcum, Boiss. & Hausskn. (P. somniferum var. glaùcum, O. Kuntze). Tulip Poppy. Annual (sometimes perennial?), glaucous and glabrous except a few small, appressed bristles along the peduncles, branched at the base: st.-lvs. broadly cordate at the base, pinnately lobed or parted: the lobes triangular, dentate; the teeth obtuse, callous, muticous: bud ovoid, somewhat attenuate at top; petals large, scarlet, spotted at the base: caps, ovate, stalked; stigmatic rays about 12. Syria to Persia. Gt. 40, p. 608, repeated in G.C. III. 10:527, R.B. 20, p. 58, S.H. 2:467 and V. 15:37. R.H. 1892, p. 463; 1893, p. 350.—The plant sold under this name reminds one immediately of a tulip because of the color and texture of the fls., but especially because of its cuplike shape. The 2 inner petals are smaller, erect, and make a loose cup. The plants grow about 12-18 in. high and produce 50-60 large fls. CH
