Poppy (/ˈkoʊklɪkoʊ/ KOHK-li-koh) is a shade of red. The term was originally a popular French name for the wild poppy Papaver rhoeas, characterized by its bright red color and orange hue. It eventually came into use in English as a name for a color based on that of the flower. The first recorded use of this use was in 1795. Claude Monet painted Les Coquelicots or Poppies in Bloom in 1873.
