Initial Editorial Analysis 23 Sep 2009
Source of Report for California The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Gary L. Hannan see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Papaver somniferum L. is most appropriately treated as a waif in CA, because most occurrences in California are as weeds in cultivation, with only a few along roadsides or other disturbed places, and evidently no evidence of reproduction of any kind. ["Unknown in the wild" in Flora North America (3:332).]
