    Thank you Carl for this helpful information. I’m not an expert of this genus, and don’t know if this is a species or hybrid. As often with hybrids, it’s is difficult to tell their exact ID. You might want to try the experts from the North America Rock Garden Society. The discussion in the included link below is informative of Papaver lateritium. Also according to sources, ‘Olympia’ is one of the cultivar from Papaver orientale. Again appreciate the above information you posted. Whenever you have the ID of your orange beauty, please share with us. Thank you & best wishes to you Carl! Laura

    According to Christopher Grey-Wilson in the book Poppies: The Poppy Family in the Wild and in Cultivation; revised edition, this is either Papaver lateritium or that is in this cultivar’s parentage. Reprinted 1995, Timber Press, Inc. available from Amazon. Carl
