This gorgeous perennial is far superior to the already famous blue poppy, Meconopsis betonicifolia. We exclusively grow beds of these gorgeous flowers in shady woodland beds in hot dry Devon, and supply most of the UK nurseries and growers (and you!) with fresh seeds. With enormous deep cobalt blue flowers, up to four inches across, this is certainly the finest blue poppy ever available in the world. It multiplies up steadily each year into a massive golden-haired clump which can be divided to increase the size of the bed, and in a shady spot with moist, organic-enriched soil, a bed of these plants makes an unbelievable long-lived sight. They set very few good seeds, but we collect every one! We challenge you to grow these fantastic plants, and when you succeed we will gladly buy your crop of ripe seed heads back from you, or exchange for a generous selection of seeds from our list, so please get in touch!

Sowing Advice

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. These long-lived plants are completely herbaceous, dying down to a large, resting, underground winter bud, please do not disturb them whilst they are asleep!
