Welsh Poppy


Welsh Poppy (Meconopsis cambrica)

Found this today when I dug out an old Hydrangea ... surprising as it's in a very dry, shady area.

I literally threw the seeds all around one area ... then realised they probably could have done with being in a damper place ... pleased to see I'm wrong (yet again!) ... lol .........

I have plenty of those - but in customer's garden. Look like they grow everywhere -sun/shade.

The seed was sent to me by a GoYer living in Wales, Kasy ... all yellow ones so far ... suits me as I don't care for the orange ones! .......

:)
I quiet like the orange ones - the paper like texture of petals;-) but yellow once are more showy have to say:) wonder if they are any good growing in pots?
