Originally listed under 'Hybrid Dark Form' This is likely to be the new name which was proposed by Dr Evelyn Stevens of the Meconopsis Group. This is an ideal plant for a shadier spot in the garden, whether the shade is cast by trees or a shed is irrelevant. Leaves emerge very early in the season, they are covered with deep brown bristles while young but become less visible as the leaf matures. Leaves are lance shaped and covered variably with brown bristles. The flowers are held on rigid stems which carry few leaves. Each stem holds several flowers each, the flowers facing outwards and slightly downwards. Colour is a rich intense blue/purple with a strong colouration towards violet, not often seen in the garden. Highly recommended. This is very close to Huntfield and Inverleith. Flowers open purple and age to rich blue, deeply serrated foliage. We believe that this is a wild collected form and may be a species but more likely a natural hybrid.
