MECONOPSIS HORRIDULA ALBA
This beautiful colour variant of the more common blue flowered plant, has palest blue buds opening to white or palest blue flowers. This meconopsis has attractively-(but not too dangerously)-spined stems and buds. Seedlings will be pale and vary in colour intensity but all will be very lovely. Very few seeds have been collected.
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.
