Meconopsis georgei


( Related to M. horridula ) A localized plant from NW Yunnan. Simply put this is a yellow flowered M. prattii with a raceme and the lower flowers arising from the axils of the stem leaves. A yellow form of M. horridula was decribed by Taylor in 1949 when he visited SE Tibet with Ludlow and Sherriff as M. horridula lutea.


Forrest’s (after whom this was named) collectors sent home seed but no success was recorded.
