White Poppy Flower Seed

Himalayan Hensol Poppy (Meconopsis Betonicifolia Violet) - A treasure for any garden, Himalayan Poppies are a gardener's pride and joy. These Poppies are rare, and sometimes prove challenging to grow from flower seeds, but what a wonderful reward awaits! Hensol Violet Poppy offers stunning blooms of violet shades ranging from light to deep violet depending on soil nutrients. A fantastic showy plant that will have all your garden visitors talking, Meconopsis betonicifolia, develops glorious blooms three - four inches wide which will enrich any shady flower garden and create a stunning sight. Himalayan Poppy care includes amending the soil with compost and providing regular applications of a balanced fertilizer. In warm climates partial shade is needed. Hensol Violet is a superb addition for woodland borders and shady areas and is beautiful blending with the more traditional white and blue Himalayan Poppy plants. Like other Meconopsis varieties, it is perfect for a shady, well-drained border. It grows well in the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, and in cool northeast areas.
