This is typical of the classic M. integrifolia. It is a short plant with a bright yellow  upward facing flower. This is the only one going to flower and I find most Meconopsis, if selfed, do not set seed. I have pollinated it with M. punicea (which can be seen behind) I have done this many times but never had seed set. Strange in some ways since M. quintuplinervia, which is close to M. punicea,
does form a hybrid called M.x Finlayorum which is very attractive.
