THE RED POPPY - or papaver rhoeas - is the most striking of our native wildflowers, adorning fields and verges across Europe with its scarlet blaze. The flower has long been important in folklore and its symbolism in world wars has been expressed by many poets. In its simplest form, the scarlet poppy never ceases to attract our eye - a delight to the english countryside - a flower of summer and the sun.
