The Prairie Poppy is a plant in Red Dead Redemption and a plant that can be found in Red Dead Redemption 2.


Prairie Poppies are little yellow flowers on top of tiny green bushes. They are very easy to miss anytime, though chances of spotting them are better throughout the day when the sun is high. It makes the green really pop out in the sea of brown that is the Great Plains.

The Prairie Poppy can be identified by the long stems and golden yellow cup-shaped flowers. The bright color of the flowers can be easily spotted against the dusty ground in the plains. This plant is native to Great Plains, West Elizabeth, and can often be found growing near train tracks. This type of poppy is one of the key ingredients in Snake Oil, though it can also be consumed by itself to increase your Dead Eye Core. [1]
