Himalayan Blue Poppy (Meconopsis betonicifolia)

Finally! I'm delighted to be able to report that my Meconopsis betonicifolia has decided to flower! I bought it, must be, about 6 years ago or more. It flowered that first year, but never flowered since. This year, three strong flower stems each with several buds. Woopee!
