Once considered a myth, blue-poppies (Meconopsis ‘Lingholm’) are alive and thriving at Longwood Gardens. These spectacular flowers—which are native to the high elevations of the Himalayan Mountains—reside in our Conservatory where temperatures are kept cool to make the plants comfortable during their flowering season.
At Longwood, we force the blue-poppies to flower every year in March. This cultivar, 'Lingholm', produces large flowers that are four-inches in diameter on average. The substantial petals are a mesmerizing deep sky blue color. When under stress, the plant may show a mauve tint.
