Probably the world's most popular wildflower, the red poppy has crept it's way into Canadian Currency, largely due to it's association with Remembrance Day in commonwealth countries. The four petals are vivid red, most commonly with a black spot at their base. They are also found in a broad mixture of colors, including pink, white, orange, and bi-colored. The plant is also edible, the seeds being used for baking and as a condiment, the red petals for a special syrup, and the fresh green parts as a vegetable!
