I have a few Meconopsis punicea grown from my own seed showing buds.  No two look the same.  The three following arethe most diverse.  The fourth pic is Meconopsis x cookei 'Satin'.  I am intrigued by its two tone furry stem.

They look really interesting Roma but then, any M punicea is a good M. punicea.

This is using the Quick Reply which is great, taking much less time to load the Reply box, but in spite of the note that smileys can still be used, I dont see any.

Hello!
Some weeks ago I discovered an unusual M. punicea in my garden. This one did not have the usual nodding flowers and this plants flower was totally open as it is normally. I have asked my friend Finn Hauglid about this feature, but he has never seen anything like this. It would be interesting to hear if any else has seen this variety before.

Hello, just been out in the garden very hard frosts with bright sunshine what we would call a great tattie lifting day. I noticed several Meconopsis flowering so am posting the pictures, cheers Ian the Christie kind.

I've had lots of flowers on Meconopsis x cookei 'Old Rose' and M.quituplinervia recently.
My Meconopsis punicea did not do well this year with few flowers on small plants which did not survive long.
Two plants did not flower and one is showing buds now.  The other has gone dormant and looks like a proper M. punicea.  I am not sure if the one about to flower is punicea.  I wrapped some fleece round it tonight and may lift it tomorrow and take it into the greenhouse. 
The first two pictures were taken on September 20th and the one with the buds yesterday.

Hey Doug

You finally have the horridula flowering! Great isn't it? Some of mines flowered a last time during late september, and were of the loveliest light violet-pink, after having had the more regular blue flowers in the early season.
Congratulations also for the punicea, which is even more attractive, of course!

Most of the buds on the Meconopsis punicea I took into the greenhouse in October aborted but one is flowering now.  It is very cheering to see bright red flowers at this time of year.  I hope the plant survives.  I may have been better to leave it in the ground and hope it did go to sleep before the weather turned nasty.
