Meconopsis pseudointegrifolia
« on: May 22, 2017, 03:00:54 PM »
Meconopsis pseudointegrifolia -The plants I grow under this name are second generation from wild collected seed (from one of the Czech seed collectors). My plants are taller than M.integrifolia but are more gracile and less hairy. The flowers are smaller, open and rather flat-faced coming from short stalks which arise from the leaf axils of a fairly long stem. These plants, though monocarpic do superficially look like a yellow-flowered version of M.baileyi. The winter resting bud is small and lies just below the soil surface. These plants seem to be somewhat more tolerant of winter wet than true M.integrifolia. I'm not sure of the differences between M.pseudointegrifolia and M.sulphurea and it may be that my plants are the latter. Any advice is most welcome. I grow these in a bed distant from my integriolia, with the house and garage separating them.

Haven't flowered my sole survivor grown as M.pseudointegrifolia yet but the leaves look very similar to yours and noriceably different from what I am growing as M. integrifolia,

I think this may be M.sulphurea. Three images follow, taken in the wild last month, showing:
Image 1 - the leaf veins [there are 3 almost parallel in m.integrifolia]
Image 2 - the inflorescence, several flowers coming from the whorl of bracts
Image 3 - an immature fruit capsule.

My only query about the ID is that the monograph says that it doesn't grow where the images were taken!

I'll attach the images to successive posts to keep the size reasonable.
