Papaver rhoeas (weed) L. - (corn poppy)

Corn poppy is a weed problem in cereal fields in Europe and surrounding regions which often develops herbicide resistance. The plants grow to a height of 50-100 cm and have four characteristic, bright red petals. Like for other Papaver species, many tiny seeds are produced in capsules which can survive for up to 5 years.
