Meconopsis X Beamishii


A cream flowered hybrid between M. grandis and M. integrifolia. Many are in cultivation, but was once grown from wild seed. M. x Sarsonii is the hybrid between M. betonicifolia and M. integrifolia but has not, as far as I am aware, been seen in the wild. It is a similar cream plant to M. x Beamishii and a few of both hybrids are perennial. The leaves are similar to the blue parent and usually disintiguish them.
