Poppies are ornamental flowers. There is the specific banned species that is cultivated for opium, morphine and codeine. We have the non opium yielding variety in our garden.
The opium yielding ones have larger, thicker and more globular seed capsule. Opium is used as a narcotic, analgesic and recreational drug. The Poppy is a symbol of remembering those who have died during war. It is a beautiful plant, easy to grow.
