By Frank L. Wendling on June 23, 2010
Meconopsis betonicifolia (Himalayan blue poppy) is a plant that grows in fairly limited geographical areas and USDA growing zones. The plant thrives in Anchorage, Alaska (cold winters/cool summers mostly 60-70 degrees F) but will likely not survive in most areas in the continental U.S. because of the summer heat. Growing Meconopsis from seed is fairly challenging, particularly without good instructions. Seeds will frequently germinate, but the seedlings will damp off and die. If the summer temperature where you live exceeds 80 degrees F on a daily basis, the likelihood of Meconopsis surviving is fairly limited, at best.

This is, of course just my opinion, based on my experience with Meconopsis and the literature that I've read. I live in Anchorage and have grown Meconopsis commercially for more than 10 years.

The order arrived very quickly in a few days. However, NO explanation about how to plant these special seeds was included. I planted them more than 4 weeks ago and no signs of seedlings yet.

I just found out on the internet that seeds must be in a dry paper bag inside the refrigerator for 4 weeks before you can plant them. They also need to be kept under 18° C when planted or else they die. Since I did not know this information, I did not do this before planting them.

When you sell a product, you should include some information about it, especially when it is something unusual like these seeds.

Thank you.

The seeds themselves are fine. If you treat them right, they'll germinate. Cold stratifying them is necessary for good germination, FYI. A couple of months in the fridge usually helps quite a bit.
The problem comes AFTER they germinate.
Now, the description says that this is a hardy plant. Well, sure it is. It's from high alpine meadows in the Himalayas. It doesn't mind cold, harsh winters at all. But it's sure not hardy to zone 5. Not because it gets too cold, but because it gets too HOT.
The simple fact is that sustained temperatures over about 75-80 degrees will kill meconopsis. Alkaline soil will kill meconopsis. Being too dry will kill meconopsis. Being too wet will kill meconopsis. Really, just about anything but replicating their natural habitat as closely as possible will kill meconopsis. Planting them in the shade won't save them from warm temps, as they are adapted for the strong sunlight of high altitude meadows and they don't like full shade. Besides, if the shade is above that 75-80 degrees it won't even help.
If you are lucky enough to live in the Pacific Northwest, Siberia, areas of Canada, northern England or Scotland (two places where, let's face it, EVERYTHING grows well, grumble grumble), Ireland, a sherpa village in the Himalayas, or Alaska these will do fantastically well for you. Meet those elusive environmental requirements, and this plant will indeed show itself to be hardy and tough.
If you live anywhere else, though, the sad and simple fact is that these will not grow for you. It's not the seller's fault. It's not your fault. It's not the fault of these seeds. It's just that meconopsis, as glorious as it is, is finicky and difficult.

"One-stop-poppy-shoppe" is a great place to buy these. However this type of poppy is very difficult to grow. The seller outlines in detail how to grow them. Yet, it
is not easy to get them to germinate & keep growing. If you follow directions very
carefully it is possible to grow them. The price was good but the seeds are hard to come by & there are only 20seeds in carefully marked packages. Other poppies
have many more seeds in each package.

Very disappointed!! I planted the seeds in pots around my yard to find what light they would they would grow best in. They did well in mostly shade and began to bloom. No Blue! I got orange, pink and white and am so disappointed that I will never order via mail for plants or seeds again. I will have to see what I'm getting from now on.

The information you have on this page says that these are easy to grow. They are NOT easy to grow, and are actually very difficult to grow in many zones, in part because they are very sensitive to heat. Your information is wrong and very misleading. I suggest potential customers research this flower before deciding to purchase.

Seeds came quickly and with and with information about planting. I understand that it is alway hard to get these special seeds to bloom, so perhaps the fact that they didn't was something I did wrong. I may try again.

These poppies didn't pop, bloom, or even sprout. They're supposed to do better in colder climates and I know that since I live in a more warm temperate area I kept them in a shaded area and still nothing.
