A fabulous imposing poppy, taller than most at 120cm with large blood-red flowers with petals like crinkled tissue paper. Each petal has a black spot at the base and a ruff of black stamens surrounds the urn of an ovary with its maroon lined felty cap. Beauty of Livermere stands taller and stiffer than most Papaver orientale varieties and has handsome and conspicuous leafy bracts below the flowers.
