Meconopsis superba ‘Pink Eye’
PINK EYED SUPERB POPPY
No wonder Meconopsis superba ‘Pink Eye’ is dubbed the Superb Poppy – there are no other words to adequately it.
So Superbly large, superbly silken, white poppies with blushing pink eyes, bloom superbly in spring & summer.
And these beautiful flowers are so proudly held above a decorative rosette blue-grey leaves.
Meconopsis superba ‘Pink Eye’ enjoys Part Shade & Dappled Shade, with perhaps just a little direct Morning Sun.
And it also relishes rich soil, manure, compost, and atmospheric humidity.
Thankfully it is frost hardy.
This raving beauty can self-seed in the right spot, which is a mercy to gardeners, because it is a short lived perennial.
So it is worth providing the right conditions and regular moisture for self-sowing or seed saving, to ensure years of these Superb Poppies.
