Papaveraceae Gallery - wild flowers of the Poppy family

Flowers in the Poppy family include the familiar red flowers associated with remembrance as well as various fumitary and cirydalis species and even, perhaps more surprisingly, those 'bleeding hearts' from Asia that have become so popular as cultivars. These thumbnail pictures have links to larger photographs and information about each of the species, their habitat needs and an identification guide.

We have used the scientific names to identify species in this table, but if you prefer to use common names we have also listed all species covered on the First Nature website in alphabetical order of Common Names...

There is also the option to see all species listed in order of Scientific Names or Botanical Families or Dominant Colour.
