Once again, there is another unidentified plant growing in my garden. This time it's in the same planter as my bougainvillea. Does anyone know what it is?
Last year we had onions growing out of nowhere in that same planter. Weird..

It sort of looks like a hops vine.
Do you make beer ?
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Compare with Papaver rhoeas
Aka corn poppy/shirley poppy.

Nope. Lol
I have all these plants growing all over my garden. I have no clue what they are or how they got there. Just yesterday I found a pumpkin vine growing next to my blue plumbagos.

I'm sure it is a corn poppy. If it is in fact a corn poppy, should I be worried about it being in the same planter as a bougainvillea? Should I separate it into a different planter?

It wouldn't survive the experience.

Don't worry about it being in with the vine... It will flower in a day or two... and then... every day for maybe a week... and then... a month to produce viable seed... and will die.
Collect the seed when the pod forms holes on the top.... that's how you can tell that they're ripe.

Okay. Thank you so much for the help! Smiling
