Images of the wonderful red Meconopsis. M. punicea. This is now firmly back in cultivation thanks to a local lady who grew on seed from plants that I gave her some years ago. We have already been able to see these back in some gardens. I have given some to Julia Cordingly who runs the lovely Explorers garden in Pitlochry and the lady who rescued them has given some to Steve McNamara at the quite wonderful gardens at Branklyn  in Perth which he curates so excellently. I hope to take plants to the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh for the late October Meconopis Group meeting to see they are shared out as widely as possible.
