Plant ID Correct? (Red Papaver Orientale)

Question

I had asome views and no zoom so looked at a few other Papaver Orientale on Alamy and mine seem to be different, mainly in having some black on the leaves towards the centre. 

Took the name from a sign that I believed came with the plant when I bought it and now I am unsure if I took the correct sign? 

 

Currently classified as oriental poppy:

If it was in England I would have gone for one of the Shirley poppy cultivars (Papaver rhoeas). There are many varieties, all derived from the European field poppy but without any dark markings at the base of the petals. Others may have better suggestions though.

Not England but Germany not too far away. 

the stem is more rhoeas, so I think you are right. 

Also have a second picture that may give more clues:

Papaver rhoeas is a self seeding annual, P. orientale a perennial with foliage that dies down after flowering but returns in late summer / early autumn. The buds of orientale are held upright on thicker, hairier stems than in your example.  I'll opt for a P. rhoeas seed strain.
