Back in June I was asked to look at a ‘pink’ Meconopsis in a friend’s garden, it had been bought as a 1st year Lingholm plant at a Plant Heritage sale. It has flowered the same colour for three years now and there are strong first year plants ready to flower next year. The seed from this year looks viable and we will grow them on as well. Any thoughts on this?

Thats a lovely unusual one Alice. Need to try and keep it going!
To me this looks like the cultivar 'Henshol violet' which seems to be a variant of M bailieyi. It tends to come true from seed.
Thanks for your interest. Seen on the ground, it is quite different from Hensol Violet. I heard that there is another plant around similar but do not know who has it.
