In Bonnefont Garden at The Cloisters, horned poppy (Glaucium flavum
) is grown in a bed devoted to medicinal plants. According to the fifteenth-century herbal Hortus Sanitatis
, glaucium was considered cooling and was used to stop bleeding. Our irresistible pin is based on poppy blossoms seen at The Cloisters museum and gardens.
