Meconopsis pseudovenusta
« on: May 23, 2017, 07:15:55 PM »
The first flower on Meconopsis pseudovenusta has opened at last.  It has five purple petals, stamens of the same colour, and orange anthers. The buds form in the centre of the leaf rosette before the scapes sequentially elongate. All the flowers are basal, although two have an agglutinated scape. This plant has 17 visible buds.

A second plants is not so big and probably won't flower this year, so I'll self-pollinate the plant with a paint-brush and see what happens.  Probably monocarpic, but you never know.
