Himalayan Blue poppy (Meconopsis Grandis) 30 seeds (#1957)

Impressive flowering poppy for part shade areas of the landscape.
Meconopsis grandis, commonly called Himalayan blue poppy or Tibetan poppy, is a stunning pure blue poppy. It is native to the western Himalayas, northern Burma, Tibet and Yunnan Province in China where it is typically found in shady mountain areas, mountain meadows, slopes and woodlands.
It is noted for producing large, deep sky blue flowers (to 10-12 cm across) in late spring. Flowers are shallowly cup-shaped usually with 4 petals. Established plants typically grow 90-100 cm tall on stems rising from a basal rosette of bristly, entire or coarsely toothed, cuneate, narrow-oblanceolate, medium green leaves. Spent flowers give way to narrow seed pods.
Grow in loose, peaty, moderately rich, slightly acidic, very well-drained but evenly moist soils in part shade. Plants will not survive unless properly sited in a suitable climate.
Plants prefer cool humid shade in woodland-like conditions, with summer temperatures typically occurring below +26C (80F) and with winter temperatures remaining mild. Part shade helps insulate plants from the heat of the sun.
During the growing season, soils must not be allowed to dry out. Mulch will prevent some loss of moisture. However, soils must have superior drainage and some soil dryness in winter to prevent the onset of root rot.
