The Q&A Archives: Source for Himalayan Blue Poppy

Question: I saw a picture of the Himalayan blue poppy, Meconopsis betonicifolia. I am trying to find out what zones they grow in and if they grow in my zone where I could get some of the seeds. Joslyn McDowell Toronto, Ontario

Answer: You can find Meconopsis betonicifolia in the J.L.Hudson, Seedsman mail-order catalog. To request a catalog write to PO Box 1058, Redwood City, CA 94064 (There is no phone number listed.)
