Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. The poppy family, an order of dicotyledonous polypetalous plants, of the cohort Parietales, distinguished by the two to three sepals, and minute embryo near the base of fleshy albumen. It includes about 80 species, in 24 genera, of which papaver is the type, nearly all from north temperate or subtropical regions. They are usually smooth herbs (often with a colored juice), covered with a grayish bloom or with long hairs. They bear alternate, generally lobed leaves, and conspicuous flowers, solitary upon long stalks with sepals which fall off at opening. By some authors this order is made to include the Fumariaceæ as a suborder.
