A fertile hybrid form of the Himalayan Blue Poppy with dazzling blue flowers. Discovered in Lingholm Gardens in the 1960s, this is probably the best form of Himalayan Blue Poppy for growing in the garden, as it is easier to grow than many others. Plants have striking big blue flowers in early to mid-summer, growing to a height of 1m – 1.5m, from a rosette of leaves. They look best grown in groups in a neutral to acidic, damp and part-shaded situation.
Meconopsis x ‘Lingholm’ can still be tricky to grow (like all Meconopsis). They like damp lightly shaded positions, and prefer cool summers. They are susceptible to damping off during germination.
