It's Blue!

After a couple of years of abject failure in the Meconopsis department I finally managed to get one to flower. And what a magnificent flower it is.

I really thought this Meconopsis was an Alba variety yet thankfully it opened up in electric blue. It is in one of my shade containers and seems perfectly happy there. Now I will have oodles and oodles of fresh seed to experiment with. Buying seed has not been very productive, it was never fresh enough to germinate but that should not be the problem this time. I just can't stop looking at them.

The colour is amazing. Sadly I never had any luck getting them to self seed.
