One gold leafed seedling among thousands from seed sown of our Blue Poppies. The leaves are most intense in spring and the flowers are a lovely amethyst. Like most, some are perennial and some are not. Save seed! Cannot be grown anywhere it gets hot and/or humid in the summer.
One of the fabled Blue Poppies whose sky blue flowers in late spring hold people in thrall. This perennial species is one of the easiest to grow, a good fertile moist soil that drains in bright to dappled to part shade is perfect while avoiding hot sun and dry. Cannot be grown anywhere it gets hot and/or humid in the summer.
One of the best of the Blue Poppies and certainly one of the most reliably perennial. This has large flowers of good medium blue. This appreciates a partly sunny to bright dappled shade position with loose organic soil that drains, yet doesn't dry out. A percentage dies after blooming so save seed to be safe! Cannot be grown anywhere it gets hot and/or humid in the summer.
Seed-grown from the plants we grew from our collection in 2003. This species had been lost to cultivation due to garden hybridization so this reintroduction was quite important in the blue poppy world. These have been better than many at remaining perennial after flowering in all of their inky-blueness. Cannot be grown anywhere it gets hot and/or humid in the summer.
We've sold this before as the pink form of baileyi but now have the correct name. These are lovely 4-petaled flowers of a distinctive mauve pink and has proved to be a good perennial form. While it is in the Poppy family, it hates the sun and dry. Cannot be grown anywhere it gets hot and/or humid in the summer. Give this a moist well-drained rich soil in bright shade to morning sun.
A expert grower friend in Scotland gave us seed of "proper" 'Lingholm' after he could no longer bear seeing the dark blue verging tinged purple flowers of the US 'Lingholm'. We told him that gardeners here are near brought to tears by our domestic blue poppy and he said just wait. Large flowers of the most piercing, unsullied sky blue. Cannot be grown anywhere it gets hot and/or humid in the summer.
These are seed-grown plants from a fantastic rich purple form of the Blue Poppy shared with us by Merrill Jensen of the Jensen-Olson Arboretum in Alaska where these magical plants grow like Matanuska cabbages. This is a very choice offering. We've not seen this before and the pedigree remains a grandis mystery, so to speak! Cannot be grown anywhere it gets hot and/or humid in the summer.
These we grew from seed we received which are a bit of a mystery as half the plants were as expected and the other these delightful rogues. We've not flowered them but certainly looks to be allied to Lingholm but whether these will be sky blue or violet blue, we can't say other than either will be lovely. Cannot be grown anywhere it gets hot and/or humid in the summer.
