Himalayan Poppy (Meconopsis Betonicifolia Blue) - What a dazzling performer for cooler summer climates. Start Poppy seeds for a treasured garden flower that is native to the Himalayan region of Asia. Also called Tibetan Blue Poppy, these perennial Poppies prefer a cool, moist, shady place to grow. The Himalayan Blue Poppy has large delicate petals held in a cup shape. The flowers can range in a wide variety of shades of blue. Alkaline soils produce more violet shades of blue even in cultivars which would normally be a pale blue. Therefore, you can adjust your color by adjusting the pH of your soil. All the Blue Poppy variations are herbaceous and very cold hardy, although they may rot in wet soil. Keep soil aerated so it does not remain saturated and your Himalayan Poppies will do well.
