Last temper was a freaky one in my garden, guiding light not only for the unseasonably nerveless and wet weather—the talk of gardeners all complete New England—but as well for its climate of paranoia. One flower was the cause: a tall, breathtaking poppy, with silky scarlet petals and a wicked heart, the ontogeny of which, I determined rather too late, is a felony low government and federal law. My poppies were, or became, felonious; another gardener’s mightiness or power not be. The legality of growing opium poppies (whose seeds are sold under many an names, including the breadseed poppy, genus papaver paeoniflorum, and, all but significantly, Papaver somniferum) is a knotted issue, turning on questions of terminology and philosophy that it took me the better part of the spend to sort out.
'They are Burs, I can say you, they'll stick wherever they are thrown,' The repute of the genus, Arctium, is derived from the Greek arktos, a bear, in allusion to the roughness of the burs, lappa, the specific name, organism calculated from a logos message 'to seize.' Another source derives the son lappa from the Celtic llap, a hand, on account of its prehensile properties. The actor owes its distribution greatly to the little hooked prickles of its involucre, which agree to everything with which they come through in contact, and by attaching themselves to coats of animals are often carried to a distance. The flower-heads are found dilated during the second part of the summer and good into the autumn: all the florets are tubular, the stamens dark purple and the styles whitish.
