Blue Poppy / Meconopsis

Meconopsis produce large disc-shaped flowers in early summer, most famously in deep intense blue, but also in many other colours. They like a cool sheltered site, out of the strongest winds, and a rich woodland soil, in sun or part shade. They are best planted small, in autumn or early spring, so that they are well-established before flowering. They are difficult to grow unless you provide them with the ideal location, but well-worth it if you can.

    We bought this plant twice, but the snails always eat it up. Nice shot.

      I have never tried to grow it, and in fact have rarely seen it, but it is such an incredible blue that it has to be worth a try! I shall make a note about the snails 🙂 Thank you for your comment.

  2. Beautiful! I cannot find it here where I can buy seeds or plants…so disappointed…
