The 'must-have' Himalayan 'Blue Poppy' has a rival in this exquisite cultivated form. Bright violet-purple, almost shimmering flowers, with the merest hint of red, make a stunning addition planted in groups in shady borders and woodland areas. This 'collectors plant' still surprises countless poppy-lovers who have never seen this unusual perennial before. Meconopsis betonicifolia 'Hensol Violet' is so named for its origins from Hensol House, Scotland, where it was discovered by Lady Henderson. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 30cm (12").


1 packet (30 meconopsis seeds) (24238)

Sow February to June or September to October. Place seed on the surface of a good free draining compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Seal container inside a polythene bag and place outdoors in a coldframe or sheltered corner. Keep the compost moist and protect from heavy rain but not frost; germination can take 1 to 3 months. Once germinated, place at 10-15C (50-59F) and water carefully to avoid damping off problems.

Transplant into 7.5cm (3 inch) pots once seedlings have 2 true leaves. Grow on in cooler conditions, with shade from strong sunlight. When well grown, plant 45cm (18 inches) apart in deep, moist loam in a sheltered, partially shaded position.
