The rare and beautiful Meconopsis, have beautiful, tall poppy-like flowers that look like something ethereal from an Old Master painting. They originate in the mountainous areas of the Himalayas, China and Tibet so are quite used to very cold winters and wet summers and prefer to grow in shade, if it is not too dry.
This variety of Meconopsis ‘China Blue’ has beguiling turquoise/mauve petals with orange tipped stamens or anthers and one central cream stigma (pistil). They are in flower from June-July and although their flowering season is not long they are worthy of a place in any garden. A good all-round plant given the right growing conditions. The plants typically flower, set seed and the host plant dies and new plants take their place.

Size guide - Pack of 3 Jumbo Plug Plants 

Our premium perennials are supplied as Jumbo plugs. These plants would benefit from potting into large pots (13cm upwards) for a few weeks before planting out in the garden. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost.  Compost volume around 5cm deep x 5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-20cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

Even though Himalayan Poppies have a reputation as being hard to grow plants, if they are given the right soil conditions and correct position in the garden then you will be rewarded with a stunning display.
Himalayan Poppies like to grow in a rich fertile soil, that is lime-free, so if you prepare your soil in advance by giving it a boost by digging in some well-rotted manure you will be providing your plants with the best possible start. A cool, damp atmosphere in shade in summer is perfect and relatively dry conditions in the winter months will ensure that your Himalayan Poppies survive and thrive!
