Papaver umbonatum (Hebrew: פרג אגסני‎,) also known as the Semitic poppy, is a flowering plant, a species of Papaver native to Israel and Palestine. It is often confused and misidentified as Papaver rhoeas (corn poppy, common in Europe) even though it is classified as the rest of the subspecies, since they are very similar in form and appearance.

Papaver umbonatum blossoms in the spring from March to June and has red flower. It is the latest red flower to blossom in Israel (Anemone coronaria is the first to blossom).
