Feature:

Late Spring
It exudes a white latex when the tissues are broken. Both the leaves and latex have an acrid taste and are mildly poisonous to grazing animals.
P. rhoeas sometimes is so abundant in agricultural fields that it may be mistaken for a crop. The only species of Papaveraceae grown as a field crop on a large scale is Papaver somniferum, the opium poppy.
