To settle an 'argument' what is the difference between Sheldonii and Lingholm?

Hello Meconopsis Lingholm is a seed raised group probably derived from M. Slieve Donard years ago several different forms are around, Meconopsis  sheldonii is a hybrid between M. grandis (true) and M. baileyi which is sterile cheers.

Thanks - I was not sure where Lingholm came from but was fairly sure it was not the same as Sheldonii. However Ken Cox's book Gardening Plants for Scotland says 'Lingholm - formerly M. x sheldonii' so I was losing the discussion. Any more info on that?

hello I am sure Ken Cox is suggesting that M. shelldonii was wrongly sold all plants were M. Lingholm sorry to say this is still listed as M. sheldonii Lingholm we will never reach everyone but keep trying cheers.
