Meconopsis paniculata


Meconopsis paniculata blooms on stems 4-5 feet tall covered in about 50 cupped, silky-textured, lemon yellow flowers.

Meconopsis paniculata is a cool relative of the famous Himalayan blue poppy also referred to as satin or Nepal poppy. Unlike its blue cousins it has a very different growth habit. It is a monocarpic plant spending a number of years building up strength as a stunning, semi-evergreen rosette with fuzzy, pinnate, dissected, yellow and orange leaves. When it blooms the flowering stem rises 4-5 feet tall covered in about 50 cupped, silky-textured, lemon yellow flowers that bloom over a long period in late spring and summer. Prefers peaty, well-drained soil that is kept evenly moist in summer and bright but indirect light. Prefers regions with cool summers and resents heat and humidity. Possibly hardy to zone 5.
