Tibetian Poppy (Meconopsis Betonicifolia) 100 seeds (#1321)

Well known hardy perennial for its piercing blue flowers but surprisingly rarely seen.
It has a reputation for being difficult to grow. However once established it requires little if any attention.
Meconopsis need cool summers and chilly winters, doing best in dappled shade and moist humus-rich soil. Blue forms are bluest in acidic soil.
These plants perish in hot or dry climates. A loose airy winter mulch may be beneficial.
A massed planting is unforgettable, especially in the company of other moisture-lovers such as Japanese primroses.
