One of the most popular species, rarely is there a truer blue seen in nature than that of a Blue Himalayan Poppy ‘meconopsis betonicifolia'. The large blooms are reminiscent of a traditional poppy in head shape, but these striking perennials offer startling blue blooms with a contrasting yellow centre and delicately bristled stems. Sure to create a head turning display within the summer garden, they flourish in cool moist climates but also warmer, drier environments with the correct care. Flowers June-July. Height 90-120cm. 9cm pot plants supplied.
