Why we love this flower:

  • Uses: Cut flower
  • Garden growth success: Advanced

Blue Himalayan Poppies are a show-stopper for a shady garden. This selection forms a rosette of hairy leaves, bearing large satiny flowers of violet purple in early summer. They can be tricky to grow, demanding an evenly moist, rich soil and cool woodland conditions. Plants are not long lived, typically flowering in the second or third year, setting seed, then dying out. These tender poppies are best in cooler summer climates, and are surprisingly tolerant of cold winter conditions.
