Red Poppy (Papaver rhoeas), also known as Common Poppy, Corn Poppy, and Field poppy, is an annual herbaceous species of flowering plant in the poppy family, Papaveraceae.
Red Poppy is notable as an agricultural weed, hence the common names including "corn" and "field" and after World War I, it is regarded as a symbol of dead soldiers.
The original botanical illustration is by Johannes Zorn (1739 - 1799), a German pharmacist, botanist, and botanical illustrator.
The illustration was first published 1796 in "Afbeeldingen der Artseny-Gewassen met Derzelver Nederduitsche en Latynsche Beschryvingen" in Amsterdam, Holland.
