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...
