As the name implies, Mexican Poppy is native to Mexico, its range also extending northwards to Texas and southwards to Central America. Although usually referred to as Mexican Poppy, it is also known as prickly or yellow poppy and blue thistle or white thistle. The blue and white are descriptive of the leaf colouration which is shown clearly in the coloured illustration.
