This is the well-loved poppy of Flanders Fields. Also known as Corn Poppy and Flanders Poppy, this species is the symbol of the American Legion. It creates an absolute vision of beauty in full bloom when the lipstick red poppies carpet a whole field, nodding in the breeze. The most famous poem of World War I begins, "In Flanders Fields, the poppies blow, among the crosses row on row." A great growth of this species after WWI finally ended, attached the lovely red flower to that war and its veterans forever. Today, red poppy is probably the world’s most popular wildflower, and is available in the pure red strain as described here or in the more popular mixed color form.
