His poem, “In Flanders Fields” spoke of these red poppies as reminders of those who had lost their lives in war. Scatter them in early spring or fall for your own personal memorial, or simply enjoy them for their glorious beauty. 2″–3″ vibrant red blooms sometimes with black markings in the center.
