Flower of the Welsh Poppy
This is a close-up of the flower seen in SJ8959 : Welsh Poppy. The Welsh Poppy (Meconopsis cambrica) is a native member of the Papaveraceae family, the four-petalled flower can be yellow or orange. Its preferred habitats are damp, shaded, areas of rocky ground although it is starting to appear in more open habitats. It is a plant that is very good at growing in gaps and cracks between rocks and stones, a habit that has led it to start colonising urban areas where it will grow between paving flags and at the bases of walls. The Welsh Nationalist party, Plaid Cymru, adopted the flower as their emblem in 2006.
