We’ve put together a collection of these wonderful perennial poppy plants for you for a striking display in your summer border:

Meconopsis napaulensis will bring the deep red hues to your display, sitting atop tall stems and flowering from late spring through to early summer. This unusual shade on a Himalayan poppy is well worth trying for and we are positive that you will love it once you’ve seen it. Height: 150cm (59"). Spread 100cm (39").

Meconopsis baileyi ‘Alba’, rarely seen, this stunning white form of the Himalayan blue poppy is a real eye-catcher in late spring and early summer. Pure white, silky petals surround golden yellow stamens to form clear, single blooms up to 10cm (4") across. This captivating short-lived perennial is 99% true to type; very occasionally the odd blue flower may appear. Height: 90cm (35"). Spread: 50cm (20").

Meconopsis baileyi is a stunning blue Himalayan Poppy that will certainly make an impact on its own, let alone as part of any collection. The large bowl shaped blooms will have a dramatic effect and are certainly worth a place in your garden. Height: 120cm (47"). Spread 45cm (18").

Grow Meconopsis in a sheltered spot in semi or dappled shade - a cool, moist woodland situation is ideal, but the Himalayan poppy will also thrive in a moist, shaded border. Meconopsis prefers a rich, moist, neutral to acid, well drained soil that remains moist throughout summer, but does not sit wet in winter.
Meconopsis poppies particularly dislike dry soils and excessive heat. Water regularly during hot, dry periods to prevent the soil from drying out. In spring, apply a mulch of chipped bark, leaf mould or other organic matter around the crown of the plant. Deadhead faded blue meconopsis flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced.
