Our Blue-poppies are now on display! Only once a year can you see an inspiring display of sky blue blooms that will last for a short time only, approximately 10 to 15 days. Blue-poppies (Meconopsis ‘Lingholm’) are infrequently cultivated outside their native habitat. Given the right conditions, this cultivar thrives in gardens located in the northern regions of the US and Europe in areas with moist and cool conditions. Every year in March, we force these rare blue-poppies to flower.
