The Colour of Sky! - Himalayan Poppy - NZ by 


This is a uniquely lovely perennial poppy which grows 2-4 feet tall. It produces beautiful silky, 3-4 inch flowers that shade garden enthusiasts love. Although they are known to grow well in the Pacific Northwest, they are worth a try anywhere Rhododendrons thrive – as the Himalayan Blue Poppy has very similar needs. They need shade, acid soil and cool, humid conditions. A special poppy for experienced shade gardeners and collectors. Seeds may require chilling. These are the most amazing coloured poppy’s, I had never seen them this colour before.

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
