Description

This is accurately-named seed collected from a wild-collected TRUE form of Meconopsis grandis. Large, floppy, mid-blue flowers arise on strong hairy stems from clumps of ginger-haired green leaves. It has recently been renamed Meconopsis grandis 'Himal Sky'.

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. Many are herbaceous, dying down to a large, resting, winter bud.
