Papaver orientale
Oriental Poppy

Emerging early in spring, the deeply lobed and hispid foliage of Oriental Poppy appears pinnately compound, but is soon obscured by the profusion of brightly-colored flowers that this perennial is grown for; both go dormant by mid-summer, and annuals or perennials should be placed nearby to fill in the predictable gap.
