Poppy's have a long history of use dating back some 6ooo years. Linked with everything from life, death, peace, medicinal, cooking, baking and spiritual causes, poppy's continue to enthrall humankind on so many levels. Poppy's have been the face of Veteran remembrances, storybook tales like The Wizard of Oz and for many years, the Red Poppy was the advertising face of Corona Beer. The Orange Poppy is California's State Flower. The Blue Poppy is sought after for its rare color and as welcomed addition to delectable sweets and pastries. In 1926 the White Poppy became a symbol of Peace in the United Kingdom's "No More War Movement." Today the pristine white flower is still considered the "Poppy Of Peace."
