Poppy Family, Papaveraceae
The Poppy family brings to mind the southern and eastern countries and poppies themselves (as well as perhaps opium), but members of the family grow in the north too. In the last big wave of change the Poppy family was joined by the Fumitory family, which is represented in Finland, at least in the south of the country. After the changes the Poppy family has 40 genera comprised of almost 1,000 species. In Finland the numbers are 7 genera and 14 species (including several ornamentals that have escaped from cultivation).
