Brilliant series of pictures Ian.  However, I have to admit that I have great difficulty in telling some of the varieties apart.  Maybe too subtle for my old eyes !

At a friend's today out on the coast.  A mystery Meconopsis in the first picture at the fore right.  At the upper left M. bailey and upper right M. 'Lingholm' for comparison.  The other pix are of the mystery Meconopsis.  She is fairly certain it is a seedling grown as a perennial in another genus!

Any ideas what it might be?

I'm afraid I don't John, but the Meconopsis group website should be helpful (hope you can work your way around the site, it's not that easy to navigate). The 'Plant Portraits' section has loads of info on flower shape, colour, leaf shape, flowering time etc.

Best, Tristan

A few more Meconopsis the first ones all yellow are M. staintoni these are the plants I posted some time ago as silvery rosettes the double is M. baileyi Amy's Dream  raised by Cyril LaFong some years ago always late so more pictures as it opens it is perennial but slow to multiply

Hello John sorry for delay with reply have been looking at you Meconopsis pictures and from the leaf it looks like M. Lingholm the flowers look darker but I know very well that M. Lingholm can be variable in fact a new Purple form is around. picture here taken at Branklyn Garden

Now that most Meconopsis flowers are past still a few which is very late I am looking at seed heads most of what I post will not produce any fertile seed. M. baileyi Hensol violet (fertile) M. Huntfield and M. Ascreavie ( No seed) M. MG 3 ( fertile)
M. baileyi (fertile)

I started this thread with this plant of M. x cookei 'Old Rose' in April. And here it is in September, having flowered more or less continuously since then (albeit the best display was early season). And it's grown as well! Excellent plant.
