A short-lived, deciduous hardy perennial with loose rosettes of hairy, oblong to ovate, bluish-green leaves and upright, bristly stems bearing saucer-shaped, pendent or horizontal, mauve to dark purple-pink flowers in summer. It will make a stunning addition planted in groups in shady borders and woodland areas. This 'collectors plant' still surprises countless poppy-lovers who have never seen this unusual perennial before. Meconopsis baileyi 'Hensol Violet' is so named for its origins from Hensol Castle, South Wales, where it was discovered by Lady Henderson. Height: 90 (36"). Spread 30cm (12").

From late Summer to early Autumn, sow seed in sieved compost - two parts multipurpose peat-free compost to one part perlite is ideal - in late summer or early Autumn. Meconopsis needs light for germination, so either sow seeds on the surface, and then cover with a fine layer of vermiculite, or put some damp perlite on top of the compost, and sow the seeds on to that. Do not allow the growing medium to dry out. (Note: Meconopsis seed has short-term viability). Once the seeds have germinated it is important not to overwater, or to allow the compost to dry out. The seedlings need to be pricked out when they have their first true leaves, but many seedling die in the process. If just a few seeds are sown in a module, they do not need this disturbance and are more likely to survive. Keep the seedlings protected by growing under a cloche, or in a greenhouse.
Sowing in late Winter gives time for a full growing season, with less chance of losing the seedlings, however the seed needs to overwinter in a cold but dry place (such as the bottom shelf of a fridge} before sowing.

Overwatering and allowing the compost to dry out can both kill the seedlings.
