Meconopsis napaulensis pink-flowered

Himalayan poppy

1 year guarantee

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: humus rich, moist, well drained, neutral to slightly acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June
  • Other features: toothed, hairy, bluish green leaves
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    From amongst the large rosette of evergreen foliage, tall branching stems arise in summer carrying heads of outward-facing to semi-pendent pink flowers. This is a majestic monocarpic species which will self-seed freely.

    These plants can be quite difficult to grow, so are probably better suited to the more experienced gardener.

  • Garden care: Stake with bamboo canes or brushwood before the flowers appear. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of bark chippings, well-rotted leaf mould or composted pine needles around the base of the plant in spring.
