Hi Arif, If these are unknown cultivars they should go in the parent plant entry. Poppies (Papaver)

Hi Evan, the first one is the non narcotic Orientale. It is not somniferum the narcotic one, that is why I put the link. The other two however are somniferum. The first one grows wild in meadows and fields is only six inches high.
Now should I put the first one also in somniferum Confused wont be fun though but let me know.
Regards,
Arif.

Based on that I'd put the first one in Papaver orientale
The last two in Papaver somniferum You could label them unknown cultivars.
If you'd like I can import them for you.

Beautiful plants. Is the pink one growing with Canna?

Yes Evan but that pink one is also non narcotic Orientale. That red one though, quite a few pods disappear during the night. People nick the pod after sunset and collect the gum before sunrise and destroy the pods Shrug!
We also use it as a spice and maybe you might find it at the corner ethnic shop, look at the following link. How about a sweetdish nodding .
