Rough Poppy
 

 

The Rough Poppy is much smaller than the Common Poppy, with deep crimson petals that overlap much less. The seed capsules are egg-shaped and covered in bristles.

It is also much less common, being found on arable land, mainly on lime, in the south of England during the summer months.
