Meconopsis aculeata - Photos In The Garden

Quite happy in a dry site in summer. Usually biennial but can take 3 years to flower. Does nor like winter water logged ground. More than 1 plant needed to ensure seed set. A white form, possibly a hybrid.
Typical purple stigma of this species. What is an easy and attractive plant but becoming scarcer in cultivation despite recent re- collection of seeds.
