Buzzbee's Garden

Blue Poppy

Genus: Meconopsis.

Species: Meconopsis betonicifolia.

Two plants bought from the Hill of Tarvit Plantsman's sale, having seen them flowering beautifully at the National Trust for Scotland's Branklyn Garden in Perth. Flowered lovely in 2007, but I know they can be short lived. Fingers-crossed that they come back or have self-seeded.

I have also twice tried to grow these from seed and failed miserably, so any hints on success would be most welcome.
