Largest poppy ever?
The largest I've seen. The flowers here are from only one plant of our native poppy. It's the coastal variety which has a yellower color than the safety orange of the interior variety. The flowers have lasted an extremely long time on this plant too.
This one is planted near the coast on a hillside, so perhaps it's in an ideal habitat. Shown below, it sprawls over a couple nearby rose bushes and an iris.
