I bought this Himalayan Blue Poppy when Heronswood Nursery was still in Kingston WA. This has to have been about 5 years ago.
When I say gardening takes patience and vision, it is events like the eventual blooming of this poppy. that I am talking about. The stem holds 10 fuzzy buds. I think the line of delicate blue is at least as pretty as the cerulean flower it has turned into.
