The most beautiful of the poppies, the opium poppy (Papaver somniferum) produces one of the most deadly drugs. Historically, it was used to cause sleep.
This Botanical Art Print is a high quality scan of one of my original pressed herbarium specimens. Printed on satin photo paper with high quality inks, the subtle characteristics of the plant shine through, making these prints look like a real pressed plant.
► Background: White. The plant pops off the crisp white background.
► Flower Color: Saturated. I’ve bumped up the color saturation on this print to make the flower pop off the page. The details are still apparent, but this print looks “fresher” than an actual dried plant as the colors have not been muted.
► Printed on high quality photo paper: 68 lb satin finish.
► Feature the scientific name lettered across the bottom.
