One of the best of the Blue Poppies and certainly one of the most reliably perennial. This large flowers of good medium blue. This appreciates a partly sunny to bright dappled shaded position with good loose organic soil that drains yet doesn't dry out. A percentage does die after blooming so save seed to be safe!
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. Give this a moist well-drained rich soil in bright shade to morning sun.
A rare offering of this impressive species which will merit pride of place in your garden. This will make a fine rosette of hairy, divided evergreen leaves for the first 2-3 years after which a stout flowering stem will arise decked out with plenty of crepe-paper purplish flowers. After this exuberance, the plant expires but leaves you with plenty of seed.
