#722 They called me Papaver rhoeas, also known as Papaver fuchsii, Papaver pseudohaussknechtii, and Papaver osswaldii. I pay homage to the male botanists Pseudohaussknecht (I couldn’t find his records), Osswald (I couldn’t find his records), and Leonhart Fuchs, or Hans Peter Fuchs. They first catalogued me in 1753.
