Red & Blue Poppies (Blue is just ‘Poppy Terminology’ – the color is actually Deep Purple) are Dominant Colors, so if you’re growing other Poppies in your Garden, and you allow Cross-Pollination. Eventually, you’ll end up with only Reds & Blues unless you prevent Crossing which is explained in the Tutorial.
The Latin Meaning behind the ‘SOMNIferum Poppy’ is: ‘SLEEPYflower‘.
Which might explain why Dorothy Fell Asleep in the Poppy Field.
The powers of the poppy have been known since at least 3400 B.C., when the Sumerians called it ‘Hul Gil’, the ‘flower of joy.’ It has also been variously called the Sacred Anchor Of Life, Milk Of Paradise, the Hand Of God, and Destroyer Of Grief.
