Exactly same as YHP growing nearby but with red flowers. Just checking it just an aberration?
No interactions present.
I have never seen a red yellow horned-poppy before. Maybe its well known in Sandwich.
Were it a red horned-poppy (G. corniculatum) the stem would be pubescent whilst yours is clearly glabrous.
Hi Cicuta. I did consider G.corniculatum. I will send the photos and location to the county recorder so they can go see it and id. The plants caught my eye, despite the driving rain and wind! M
The stem in the main photo is completely devoid of hairs which leads me to suspect that this is an aberrant colour form of yellow horned-poppy not a red horned-poppy.
Hi Mark. Thanks. I also think it is aberrant. But I have reported it to the recorder anyway. Everything about it was a dead ringer for YHP. I didn't know about the stems, not seen red-horned poppy. Cheers. M
Thanks for the update.Interesting record - I wonder if this colour form has been noted elsewhere!
