Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
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").

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.
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.

Reviews

Sadly only one out of 4 survived :( 2016-06-09

I bought two of these last year, which were rather weak and feeble on receipt and didn't survive, so T and M kindly provided replacements. The next two did slightly better, survived the winter, but they seem very fussy about exactly how much sun or shade they get and only one is alive now, still teeny tiny and nowhere near flowering this year.

T&M replied on 2016-09-06: Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to learn of your disappointment with your purchase. At your earliest convenience please contact our Customer Care Department at ccare@thompson-morgan.com, one of our agents will be more than happy to look into this further for you.
