Himalayan Blue Poppies (Meconopis ‘Lingholm’) are a rare breed found high in the Himalayas. Longwood Gardens, PA, showcases them each March in their indoor conservatories and they are very popular with local visitors. The colors of the Blue Poppies range from brilliant deep blues through mauve-tinted blue to light mauve/blue blends. Here are three beautiful specimens from this year’s display. The blue poppy is Bhutan’s national flower.
