These are some lovely images from Russia. A quite superb form of what I still call Meconopsis betonicifolia rather than the new name for M. baileyii - and anyway these were grown from seed sent as Hensol Violet from Sweden. They are grown in the garden of a clearly very accomplished plant grower in St-Petersbourg  in Russia - Svetlana Voronina - who has large collections of many plants. She gardens near a forested area so there is shade and wind protection and the area is normally quite wet.
