Texas Prickly Poppy

Texas Prickly Poppy - We love the wildflowers in Texas even our prickly poppies. Prickly poppies grow quite well in the Texas hill country and this year they are plentiful. I love the feathery leaves and orange stamens in the center. The pedals of the flower are paper thin and appear winkled and photographing them can be difficult just a slight breeze and the feathery pedals move. The poppy flower are about 18 inch tall and in bud the three sepals end in hornlike spines. They are common to see in the texas hill country and to some degree they can become a problem as they can take over and push out other wildflowers in the area. Prickly poppies can come in different colors not just white like in the hill country but can be pink, lavender to yellow depending on where they are located. If poppies come up in large numbers in an area you are less likely to see other texas wildflowers the next year at the same site. Deer nor cows will eat them so not much want to chow down on these plentiful wildflowers. Some bird do eat their seeds but other than that not much to stop them once they start growing. The native americans did use the poppy for many purpose and many herbalist still use part of the flower to treat ailments today.

Canvas wrap

Canvas wraps are printed on white archival poly-cotton blend matte canvas. The canvas is wrapped on a 1.5" stretcher framed and finished with a durable black backing. The gallery wrap arrives at your doorstep ready to hang. After an order is submitted, the canvas usually arrives within 5-6 business days. While canvas wraps are more expensive, there is no need for matting and framing. After a fine art print is matted and framed, the cost is often equivalent or even slightly more than a canvas wrap.
