What kind of flower is this??

Good Morning,

I moved into a new place and these orange perennials were planted in the container sitting on our back porch. The tag says partial sun perennials and they seem to be doing great. However the real name of this specific flower is nowhere to be found.

Any ideas what this flower is? It's probably pretty basic, and the tag shows it came from Home Depot.

Looks like a Geum to me - I don't know which variety. I love the color.

Oops, you are correct. When I enlarged the photo I could see the buds. Definitely poppy.

Definitely poppies, they look like iceland poppies to me. The flower of the iceland poppy is crinkly looking and the colors are mostly in spring pastels and are often sold at garden stores.
