This wet autumn seems to be suiting my M. wallichii seedlings sown this spring - and the leaves look amazing with raindrops on them.

This one was bought from seed labelled as 'M.regia' but it's a garden hybrid of some sort, still a pretty enough rosette.

Thanks Ian. They were labelled only as 'Meconopsis sp.'. Ian Scott has examined his seed from the same source and thought they were most likely wallichii, but we will see! I haven't grown either species before so have an open mind. Whatever the plant, the rosettes are beautiful.
