Himalayan Blue Poppy - Knowledgebase Question

Looking for a new flower that is kind of rare. The common name is Himalayan Blue Poppy. I do not know the Latin name for it. I saw it it a cataloge last year, but have not seen it since then. They were advertised as small plants, not bulbs.

Has anyone heard of this poppy and where can I buy them ?

Thank you very much, EW

The Himalayan Blue Poppy is Meconopsis betonicifolia. You can purchase seeds for this beautiful perennial plant, or you can sometimes purchase small plants. I cannot find a plant source for you, but seeds are available through Thompson & Morgan, Inc., P. O. Box 1308, Jackson, NJ 08527-0308. (www.thompsonmorgan.com)
