Papaver rhoeas or corn poppy is a herbaceous species of flowering plant in the poppy family, Papaveraceae.
This poppy, a native of Europe, is notable as an agricultural weed.
Papaver rhoeas is a annual plant, forming a long-lived soil seed bank that can germinate when the soil is disturbed.
In the northern hemisphere it generally flowers in late spring, but if the weather is warm enough other flowers frequently appear at the beginning of autumn.
It grows up to about 70cm in height.
Corn poppy contains the alkaloid rhoeadine which is a mild sedative, same of opium poppy.
