unknown seedling
« on: 11 August, 2017, 13:21:41 »
A seedling in a batch of aculeata was different from the others so I potted it up separately. Is it a meconopsis & if so what?
It is about 200mm tall & the petiole is about 110mm long.

I have just been looking at a post by AliceB from may this year, she got an id of baileyi. Neither are like other baileyi I have. My leaf blade is shorter than the petiole & it is broader tho the asymetric base of the leaf is baileyi-like.

Hello your plant looks like Meconopsis MG 3 (Alaska) close to M. betonicifolia cheers.

It has now started to regrow & there are two offsets in the pot. I scraped away some of the compost & the offsets appear to be stolons. Are they & is this compatible withe the MG3 diagnosis?
It would be usefull to have more information & photos of MG1, MG2, MG3 etc. I've looked on the websites but cannot find anything.

My MGS#3 plants last year, 3 years old, showed signs of stolons.  I had not paid attention to them until Ian Scott had mentioned he was noticing it too on his plants.

There is an image of MGS#3 on the Meconopsis Group Twitter page on 2nd June 2016. Its the fully open flower. From memory the leaves have a particular identifying little round, semi circular notch at the base of the 'tooth' on the leaf side. Excuse the non botanical terms to describe. The particular plant in the image definitely had a healthy stolon shoot a few inches away from the main plant the following year.

I've found the photo on twitter. It shows some leaves & the notch appears to be parallel sided with a radius at the bottom. I'll see how my plant compares & try & get a better photo, maybe when the plant is older.

Thanks, I've downloaded them, they certainly look similar to mine.

<br /><br /><br /><br />I've scanned (front & back) a mature basal leaf from my plant. I'm struggling to match it in either of the Meconopsis books. Drawing D on page 138 of CGW's book looks the nearest but my leaf is much larger.
I missed the flower but it was blue/Lingholm-like. The pods have rufous bristles.
