Why Don't All Remembrance Poppies Have Leaves?


When you buy poppies for Remembrance Day they have leaves on. Why do ones on the street or in the Supermarket have leaves but others - Scotland and the ones the Royal family wear - don't?

Answer: The leaf on the poppy has no meaning, it is just decoration. Saved money in Scotland to not put a leaf on so they decided not to.
