Blue Poppies in the Blogosphere

Blue Poppy - Meconopsis betonicifolia

Took this photo in AK – ’07. Tried to grow them in my MD garden in ’08, after researching seeds in same Genus that might flourish (a little, a hope) here in our region of the Mid-Atlantic. Got some feeble seedlings to come up on seed tray and then they died back. I’ll just grow them in photos around the web. sigh. This is my photo for Facebook, instead of a photo of my face. Maybe we can create a Flowerbook like Facebook and have flowers talking with each other!


Then again, they don’t need the internet to do that, according to my Cherokee teacher. ;~)

    I have grown the poppies from fresh gathered seeds one year and in the next spring sown in cell packs and left outside on the deck from February on… we are in zone 6 and have -20 degrees on occasion and the poppies have grown here for the past 6years. The first year remove the potential flowers and the second year a wonderful show will be yours.
    Happy Gardening

  2. Kate,
    You sound like a very gifted gardener. It is heartening to read that you’ve had success in your zone with the blue poppies. I have been shifting my focus to actually growing more food in my garden these days and put the blue poppy dream to the side. But your note is a nudge to me to perhaps try again. thanks!
