Meconopsis betonicifolia 'Hensol Violet'. Photographed, 25 May 2017, at Reedie Cottage Gardens, East Scotland. Absolutely gorgeous Himalayan Poppy. The flowers open a deep, rich purple, and gradually fade to a light blue (as shown in this photo). Looks great en masse and is quintessentially a cottage garden plant! #meconopsis #hensolsviolet #richpurple #lightblue #reediecottagegarden

Meconopsis betonicifolia 'Hensol Violet'. Photographed today, 24 April 2017, at Reedie Cottage Garden, East Scotland. Needing to do a bit of weeding around the plants that are coming up now. This is a truly beautiful Meconopsis. Open with a deep royal purple flower, that gradually fades to a pale blue. Recommeded plant for any garden! #meconopsis #hensol-violet #purple #paleblue #mid-spring

@jeatacake This is a gorgeous Meconopsis. It starts of this rich deep purple, and as the days go by, it starts to lighten to a China blue with a hint of lilac. Just a pity they don't last too long. Papaver orientale varieties last longer. However, Meconopsis Bailey 'Hensol Violet' is really worth having in the garden. Definitely recommend having one or more in the garden!!! 😀

It's fabulous. I have tried a few blue poppies without success, but one like this is certainly worth more effort!
