Interesting

I'm thinking I may have some opium growing in my side yard. Check it out.





This is what it looks like when it blooms.




We inherited a lot of plants when we bought the house. Can anybody tell me what this is?

Hmmmm...I don't know plants very well but that just might be opium since that looks a lot like a poppy...or is it spelled poppey?

Those are definitely poppies....not necessarily the type to make opium with, but they are poppies. If you leave the seedheads on them and just let them spray their seeds all over the place (or you can help them when they dry up, just sprinkle the seeds). They and their mutant friends will continue to show up in your garden. Pretty!

I was going to say poppies. They are beautiful in full bloom.

just to second lelo, not all poppy plants are the kind that are used to make opium. But I did hear of a lot of poppy plants that do grow that may be of that specific species.

It may help to do some googling of poppy and opium and determine if you do have plants. If so SWEEET.
