Himalayan poppy. A bit pale this year, needs a dose of tonic...


hildegard says:

Ta - recipe for success; one bucket-size pot ericaceous compost, one shady site, annual tonic & lashings of benign neglect. :)

This is quite pale by comparison with the usual colour & you're right, it generally has more luminescence. My fault - forgot to give it a dose of sequestered iron in the spring, which is really all it ever needs...

Swamprose - Just the sequestered iron really - in pots, even in ericaceous compost, it quickly uses up the available iron & starts to go yellow /red brown & die. Meconopsis likes a bit of food too - ISTR it's a temperate rainforest plant, for all that it's Himalayan - just not very far up the Himalayas...
