It is hoped to be able to help people identify their Meconopsis. So if you have ID issues please ask away and we will see what we can do.

I find the racemosa, prattii and rudis plants hard to distinguish between one and other

The attached from seed from the seed exchange. Lovely deep shiny blue and retains the colour until it drops. Next generation looks the same.

Resending the picture after reading ianC's post on sizing to see if it makes any difference.

I am attaching a photo of a CC7714 I have. At the moment my guess is it is staintonii. It is obviously in a pot (10L) along with 2 others and I intend to keep them isolated to prevent cross-pollination. I will post further photos as they go on.

I now think paniculata see later post

I can see it on the post & by clicking on it see it in photo-viewer.
Do you have to log in to see images?

I have just logged out to check & you cannot see any attachments unless you are logged in.

Thank you - seeing it now and it looks really good. Yes, one needs to be logged in to see the photos (which I was) but it was probably me not reading properly.

I was given seed from a regular source and told it was Prattii but I think not. See photographs. Plants are about 18" tall and bulking well looks like they will be perennial. Any suggestions?

My plants of CC 7714 are also flowering. Nice example of Meconopsis paniculata as tentatively identified by Chris Chadwell when he sent out seed allocations.

Any thoughts on this one? The flower buds come off the stems. Very pretty. Source is MGS105. From a dozen plants there are about eight variations in colour from white through shades of blue to purple but all with flowers down the stem apart from one.

Only just seen your purple (violet, pinky-violet ?) M. baileyi. It looks very similar to what I have been growing as 'Sue's Violet' which clearly differs from 'Hensol Violet' but seems to come true from seed (so far !)

It also comes in white though the heads are not so tight on the stem as the dusky pink. In addition to the pink & white there was also a blue from the same set of seed plus a rather harsh shiny blue. I have sown seed of the white & pink so hope I may get some true as you have.

This variation matches the variation I got with the batch of M. baileyi seeds that came from the Mec Group seed exchange in, I think, 2014 and was the batch from which 'Sue's Violet' was selected. There were some very good white forms in that mix and varying shades of blue.

I got these from the 2016/17 Hardy Plant Society distribution as betonicifolia. 7 have survived the winter, partly in a greenhouse, and are now coming to life.
Any suggestions as to what they are?

These are a few months older than the betonicifolia in my last post, sown august 2016 not january 2017, & the parent was a baileyi originaly from either HPS or RHS seed
The leaves are a different shape & not so hairy.

These leaves are correct for M. baileyi as they are heart-shaped at the base.

The first photograph, the seeds from the HPS, look like M.Lingholm.  The second photograph is M.baileyi. They could though, as they are from seed, be hybrids. It will be interesting to see once they flower.

Can someone clarify what un-named hybrids should be called.
Is x complexa only to be used for napaulensis (hort)?
What should paniculata and others that have been subject to some degree of crossing with one or more unknowns be called, eg paniculata (hort) or just "meconopsis hybrids" with a comment such as "rosette type"?
