Papaver rhoeas 'Mother of Pearl' is a pretty mix of corn poppies with single and double flowers in pink, white, reds and silvery greys, which gently scatters itself in my garden from one year to the next. The flowers also last well in water if you sear the stem ends.
They do not like transplanting so sow in situ.
