This poppy has me stumped. I have been searching online to find out the name but have come up empty. If anyone knows the name - I'd really appreciate knowing. I think it has such beautiful colours. In my search I learned something new again - there are such a large variety of Poppies! (it is April 19th and Chuck Rickman thought it may be 'Perry's White Poppy'. I have checked out a number of sites and am almost 100% sure it is - so Perry's White Poppy it will be! thanks so much CHUCK !

The colors on the petals in the foreground are so striking and vivid, and the ones in the background melt right into the oil textures...makes it look three dimensional. This is gorgeous. I looked at the poppy varieties and the closest one to this is the giganteum, but I could not find one at the same angle you are showing here, so I can't be sure.

Check out "Perry's White" poppy. It is difficult to say because we have a side view here and it is not open yet to real how it looks opened. I think that might be it. Gorgeous poppy and capture!
