This highly coveted true blue poppy can be found growing wild in moist, shady, mountainous areas, alpine meadows and rocky slopes of the Himalayas. In early-to-mid summer it bears clusters of pendant to horizontal, saucer-shaped, 3 to 4 inch bright blue flowers with yellow stamens on bristly stems. Loose, basal rosettes of toothed, blue-green leaves are covered with rust-colored hairs. It's particularly well-adapted to moist regions of the Northwestern U.S., but can be grown successfully if given a semi-shaded location in well-drained soil rich in humus and a mulch in summer to keep the roots cool. Plants can be short-lived, but may self-seed for continuity.
