37. Welsh Poppy
(Meconopsis cambrica Vig.)

37. Welsh Poppy

The Welsh poppy is truly at home in damp and rocky places in Wales and south-west England, but is naturalised in other parts of the country. Its rootstock is perennial, and the leafy stems rise to about one to two feet. The leaves are pale green, pinnately divided, and the lower ones are on long stalks. The pale yellow flowers, each with four petals, are at their best in June and July.
