Visiting England: Bombast Rose Poppy

I felt a little like I was Alice in Wonderland when I found these Bombast Rose poppies blooming at the manor house on the Frampton Court Estate. I thought, "I have no idea what this is, but I have to have it!"

Have you ever felt that way about something? The petals of this gorgeous "peony poppy" are like shredded pink tissue paper. I've never seen anything like it - such big blooms! It is on my garden list for Spring 2011 - please don't let me forget.
