It just showed up in isolation. Other poppies in the garden are orientals (Double lilacs) and Flanders poppies, plus a couple that look like Thelma Crawfords but Im danged if I know what this beauty is. If I knew, I get more. It is my favorite.

Nope! I can not see it there, I did find 2 matches on Google poppy images but they were "stock" images and only told about the photographer who seemed to know nothing about the flower. Bouns! I will try and order some of that sites seeds! She has some wonderful stuff! Thank You!

The leaves look like a common field / Flanders poppy. II suspect it of being a mutation of some sort because I harvest my seed and that did not produce a look-a-like. I also notice a number of poppies, each season, that seem to be mutations from my other oriental poppies. There are always a few, like that each season. I have yet to figure out how to make them "stay" mutated because all seed seems to revert back to standard. Sad Sighing!

It is absolutely Not a California poppy, though I do have some of those, nor is it an arctic.

Is it this one? It came up as a volunteer in my garden many years ago, and now it's everywhere.

Not particularly pretty. Similar to the seed pods of California poppies. The pods are visible in this multi-plant photo:

I actually think they are very pretty. They look like a nice accent flower. I do a full mixed bed, trying to look as much like it happened by accident as possible. I think they would work well in my front gardens! Do you know what they are called?

They are very pretty. My "not particularly pretty" comment was a response to Frillylily's question about the seed pods. As for the name, it was provided above. It's Papaver atlanticum 'Flore Pleno.'
