Slightly confused about the flower – is it the Oriental Poppy or the Common Poppy. But beautiful nevertheless. Narcotic content of the poppy is very minimal, but fresh flowers supposedly have the odour similar to that of the Opium Poppy. These are single large red flowers with a black center. They flower profusely in May-June, but I found this in March in Lodi Gardens, New Delhi
Botanical name: Papaver orientale Family: Papaveraceae (poppy family)
