Description
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 baileyi '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").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Pot up meconopsis plants into peaty compost and grow them on in bright, frost-free conditions with protection from strong, direct sunlight. When they are well grown, acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days, prior to planting out in their final positions. Choose 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.
More Info
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 meconopsis flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced.
