The flower of a Giant Pod Poppy is quite large and light-red, with a purple cross. The flower gives way to an extra-large, urn-shaped pod.
Poppies are considered useful in spells for fertility, love, money, luck, sleep, and invisibility. Each color of poppy can enhance a spell using that specific color magick in coordination to the general poppy uses, for example using a blue poppy in a sleep spell to enhance the calming effects.
