A species of poppy. It is an annual herb with bright yellow sap.
Found in Mexico and now widely naturalized in the United States, India and Ethiopia.
The seeds resemble the seeds of Brassica nigra (mustard). As a result, mustard oil is adulterated by argemone seed oil rendering it poisonous, though the plant has its own medicinal uses.
