The Paris Flower I Can Not Name

Aren't these stunning?
This April In Paris this flower was everywhere and I fell in love.
I thought they were roses, then poppies then I started to ask people.
The problem was that each time I asked for the name I was given one in French which I immediately forgot.
In the antique market, I spotted yet another bouquet.

The vendor was amused with how much I wanted to capture these flowers in a photo. She took the time to write the name of the flower on a business card..which I can't find.
Blog readers. Help! Do you recognize this flower?
