Red on Black

I bought a bunch of fenugreek leaves yesterday from the market, and while stripping them, found a half-dead poppy bug with stalk. Within an hour of putting the stalk in a bowl of water, the flower had opened up.. This is that very same flower. Question is? Which country did this poppy originate from? It is too cold in the UK to as yet have fenugreek plants ๐Ÿ™‚
