Papaver umbonatum also known as the Semitic poppy, is a flowering plant, a species of Papaver . It is often confused and misidentified as Papaver rhoeas (corn poppy, common in Europe) even though it is classified as the rest of the subspecies, since they are very similar in form and appearance.

Papaver umbonatum blossoms in the spring from March to June and has red flower (Anemone coronaria is the first to blossom).
