MECONOPSIS GRANDIS BURGUNDY
A spontaneous mutation has caused a superb, brand new colour-break in this legendary plant. This new colour comes rewardingly true from seed although the odd blue one may still appear. It apparently also appeared spontaneously in the garden of a Scandinavian gardener who called it 'Sortland'!
Seeds can be sown at any time, but for a full season of growth are best sown in trays in early spring. Cover seeds thinly in a cool spot, artificial heat is rarely needed as this can cause rapid germination and fungal attack. Seedlings usually appear within 3 to 6 weeks but can take much longer. Pot on into small pots and protect from hot sun. Plant out into a shaded, moist, peaty or organic soil. Many are herbaceous, dying down to a large, resting, winter bud.
