meconopsis punicea
« on: November 20, 2017, 02:00:32 PM »
I was amazed yesterday to see a flower on one of 6 germinated seeds sown last December, it's difficult enough for me to germinate punicea and to have a flower in November less than a year later is a bonus.

I have had some late flowers too including dhwojii though very short stemmed.

Probably caused by the long drawn out autumns we have with a mixture of we and mild weather.

One more for the competition to be latest to flower (28th November)

I think that it's Meconopsis grandis.  It's a Chadwell collection from his final trip - so no data, but the seed were large for Meconopsis sp.

I only hope that the plant can now survive the winter and come up again next year!  Tempted to cut off the flower head, but then it'll probably rot.
