Shirley And The Moonflower
Photograph - Photography
If you love poppies, be sure to also visit my gallery, Poppies. This poppy has been paired up with a perennial moon flower for a floral display in my garden, shot with available light. Shirley Poppy is the name given to an ornamental cultivar group derived from the European wild field poppy (Papaver rhoeas).
AND Datura metel is a shrub-like perennial herb, commonly known as angel's trumpet, devil's trumpet, and metel.
Datura metel grows in the wild in all the warmer parts of the world, and is cultivated worldwide for its chemical and ornamental properties. It was first described by Linnaeus in 1753, but no botanically correct illustrations or descriptions were made until after the New World was settled. It is not possible to be sure about its original home.
