I received the poppy labeled, Papaver sp. aff. microcarpum as a freebie with a large order. There is absolutely nothing to be found on the internet regarding the plant. I would appreciate help with identification.

I think aff. means "very similar to" so perhaps it means very similar to the species microcarpum? I googled and found this nursery in Canada that shows a photo of a plant labeled the same as yours but the only information given is that it's found in a volcano area of Kamchatka, Russia: https://www.wrightmanalpines.c...

Hi Greg. Yes, they look very much like that & I had the white form too, more than several years ago & another yellow flowered, alaskanum, with slightly different leaves.. Do you happen to have any seeds available, even to trade ? I had some in years past, when the Alaska Native Pant seed list used to offer them for just fifty cents a packet, but can't seem to find any nowadays. I would love to grow it again. Thanks, Shawn.

Unfortunately my plant melted during the hot and humid summers in Kansas, I'm hoping to get additional plants in the spring and try again.

Oh, that would be great! I like alpines & don't seem to survive summer heat,, but once they flower it is over. I had considered getting ordering Aquilegia jonesii seeds once again, as they are so tiny too. It took three months in the fridge just to even start germinating & they survived while young through a summer of heat, but can't recall what happened after that.. I tried Campanula raineri, but unfortunately no germination, unfortunately.
As I recall, I simply sowed the poppy seeds in deep pots that were sent from Alaska Native Plant Society, just prior to the end of summer.Then wanted to get something else in exchange from Sweden, as they wanted my spare seeds. Yeah, it is much like a cool season annual in most of the lower 48 states. I hadn't realized they would bloom in winter, either. Therefore, they had blossom buds at the base & when winter hit hard, frozen solid, sadly all those defrosted buds quickly caused all to rot....
Please do keep me updated, thanks. Shawn
