Mecanopsis
In flower - in Sheffield
but not in the Botanical Gardens!
P. Kohn, 11 June 2013
The original planting of blue Himalayan poppies has been very disappointing this year (especially as a parallel planting on a nearby allotment - shown here - has thrived). Same plants, similar soil?
The new planting in the Marnock garden is looking good just now. Meconopsis superba appears to be building up nicely to flower this year. When it does it should provide a very striking display, but sadly an ephemeral one, as the plants are monocarpic and will die after flowering.
