Poppy Fun Facts
🪴Poppy is the common name for any of the plants comprising the Papaver genus in the flowering plant family Papaveraceae.
🪴There are more than 70 species of Papaver family.
🪴 Culinary poppy seeds are a source of minerals, calcium and iron and are derived mainly from the opium poppy P. Somniferum In China, Taiwan and Singapore the seeds are banned because of their potential to be used in to grow opium poppies and even food containing the seeds is prohibited, although the ripe seed has negligible narcotic properties.
🪴According to BBC, In 1922, Major George Howson set up the Poppy Factory in Richmond to employ disabled ex-servicemen. Assembling the poppy required only one hand, allowing veterans who had lost an arm to work on the production line. This factory still employs disabled veterans, and they make approximately 36 million poppies each year.
🪴After World War I, the poppy flourished in Europe. The red poppy flowers bloomed above the battle graves.
🪴In 1918, Moina Michael popularized the idea of wearing a poppy flower in memory of the war dead.
🪴According to the War Museum, The poppy is recognized as a symbol of remembrance for war dead in Canada, the countries of the British Commonwealth, and the United States. The flower owes its significance to the poem In Flanders Fields, written by Major (later Lieutenant-Colonel) John McCrae, a field surgeon in the Canadian artillery, in the midst of the Second Battle of Ypres, in Belgium, in May 1915.
