Common name: Blue Poppy, Himalayan Poppy

 

This quite reliable perennial is far superior to Meconopsis betonicifolia. It has enormous deep cobalt blue flowers, up to four inches across, and is certainly the best blue poppy ever available. It multiplies up each year into a massive golden-haired clump which can be divided to increase the size of the bed. In a shady spot with organic-enriched soil a bed of these plants make an unbelievable sight. We challenge you to grow these gorgeous plants, and we will gladly buy seed back from you or exchange it for seeds from our catalogue.

 

SOWING ADVICE:

Seeds can be sown at any time, but for a full season of growth are best sown in trays early spring. Cover seeds very thinly, in a cool spot no artificial heat is needed as this can cause rapid GERMINATION AND FUNGAL ATTACK, OR EVEN MAKE THE SEEDS GO MORE DEEPLY DORMANT. Seedlings usually appear within 3 to 6 weeks but can take much longer. Pot on into 3 inch pots with cover to protect from hot sun. Plant out into a shaded, moist peaty or organic soil.
