Meconopsis chelidonifolia
« on: March 20, 2008, 08:45:38 AM »
Hi,

Has anyone here experience with Meconopsis chelidonifolia ? I found this plant described in "The explorer's garden and was looking for it ever since, but it doesn't seem to be around.

Thank you !

Best regards from Munich,

Hi Michael
I've grown and killed this - not an encouraging start I know  ::). My plant came from a garden a few miles away from me and I'm going to hope they have more plants this year. I think I killed it due to not keeping it moist enough while it established. I suspect from where it was growing that once established it is relatively tough but would be really interested if anyone else has any information about it.

Hi Sue !

Lucky you to live close to a source of this species ! If you appear to be there in summer, maybe you could ask for some seeds ? Would be great !
Anyway, good luck for your next try with a plant ! From what I've read this species does not seem to be very difficult, more like M. cambrica than like the blue ones.....
