Persian white is a classic strain of poppy known for white seeds and pure white flowers. It is one of the quickest somniferum poppies to mature. Somniferum is the variety of poppy whose seeds are most often used in culinary activities and baking. The seed oil is also used for a variety of purposes such as making paints, varnishes and salad dressings. The seeds are produced abundantly in pods that, like those of the peony poppy, are used in dried floral arrangements. The pods of this variety are round and light green. Like the peony, somniferum poppies have been a common feature of poetry and art dating well into ancient times. It is cultivated in many parts of the world as a crop and an ornamental flower. Unlike peonies, though, the flowers are not frilly. With plants stretching up to four feet, the foliage is bluish green and resembles lettuce. They will usually hybridize with other poppies if precautions are not taken to prevent cross-pollination.
