Agrostemma githago, the common corn-cockle (also written "corncockle" and "corn cockle" and known locally simply as "the corncockle").
Of European wheat fields, in the 19th century, it was reported as a very common weed of wheat fields and its seeds were inadvertently included in harvested wheat seed and then resown the following season. It is very likely that until the 20th century, most wheat contained some corncockle seed. It is now present in many parts of the temperate world as an alien species, probably introduced with imported European wheat. It is known to occur throughout much of the United States, parts of Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. - Wikipedia
