Papaveraceae
The Poppy Family
Plantae
This is quite a small family, with about 250 species found mainly in the northern temperate regions of the world. Many are familiar garden plants - Poppies, Meconopsis, Californian Poppies, Argemone and Dendromecon. Few are of economic importance, although the Opium Poppy (Papaver somniferum) is the source of opium and heroin, and its seeds are used in baking. Other species yield oils used in making soap. Most members of this Family are herbaceous annuals or perennials, but there are also a few shrubs.


Two sepals enclosing the flower bud, which fall off when it opens.
Four brightly-coloured petals
Many stamens
Rounded seed pod forming inside the flower
