Very nice Ian!!!

As Mec. Sichuan Silk is a named form -is this a perennial type of M. punicea?

Is it the same as the 1/8th hybrid, or a different cross?

Hello again as far as I know this form is not a hybrid sets viable seed although not all offspring are perennial I have never crossed this with anything and all plants we sell are divisions from the original collection from 2003 did not flower till 2005, cheers Ian

Thanks Ian!
Good to hear that there's a perennial form.
Even better to hear that you have got it!  ;)

Thank you from Sichuan as well! James Cobb once sent me pictures of one of his ([cookei x punicea] x punicea) hybrid, nicknamed "1/8th", and I wasn't sure if this was the same plant. Did your 'Sichuan Silk' originate from a 2003 wild collection, or from garden seeds?

 Alan  - Wonderful to see those Meconopsis rarities.  That's an impressive array of chimney pots on your potting shed.

Thanks John. Ha I hadn't noticed the chimneys. I actually put a new living roof on the shed Couple of weekends ago. The seeds are currently germinating merrily. Will post pictures when it's in full swing.
