SHOT 5/21/2007 and 5/22/2007 - Images of an orange poppy at the VanDusen Botanical Gardens in Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. A poppy is any of a number of showy flowers, typically with one per stem, belonging to the poppy family. They include a number of attractive wildflower species with showy flowers found growing singularly or in large groups, many species are also grown in gardens. This spectacular 22-hectare (55-acre) garden in the heart of Vancouver has matured into a botanical garden of international stature since opening to the public in 1975. The mild Vancouver climate allows the cultivation of an outstanding plant collection which is spectacular any time of the year. VanDusen boasts over 255,000 plants representing more than 7,300 taxa from around the world. Our plant collections represent ecosystems that range from tropical South Africa, to the Himalayas, to the Canadian Arctic, as well as plants native to our own Pacific Northwest..(Photo by Marc Piscotty © 2007)
