Great clumps there Roma and if we didn't know M. punicea, we would be terribly impressed. ??? If only the colour, habit and perennial-ness (?) of punicea could be transferred to a plant as vigorous and fine as this.

This lovely pale blue form appeared in a patch of Meconopsis horridula.  The others are all a good deep blue.

Having lost the label on these seed-raised plants which I obtained as seedlings, I'm fairly sure that they are Meconopsis Lingholm.
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.  :)

As bristles of the seed pod are long,they seem to be M.Lingholm.
Peter, I agree.

My posting pictures are the hybrid between M.grandis (Lingholm?)
and M.integrifolia.
They were hand-pollinated four years ago,and flowered last year for the first time.
I wonder if the blue one is true hybrid or not.

Tetsuo,

My only experience of Mec. x beamishii was several years ago and the seedlings were all a pale yellow. I too would be a little uncetain about the blue one.
