The Himalayan Blue Poppy has one of our best sellers! They are very popular because of their rarity & their beautiful flowers in the most stunning shade of blue I have ever seen! Poppies attract bees, butterflies, and birds.
The huge showy 2 - 4" blooms make them an excellent cut flower, and their unique looking seed pods are splendid in dried arrangements or for crafts. They are known in folk medicine as a mild sedative and analgesic
