The Himalayan Blue Poppy is one of those plants that every gardener wants to try however; it is also one of those things that is oh so easy to kill. I’ve tried to grow three different plants and even tried to start them from seed, and I still don’t have a single surviving plant in my garden even though they are supposed to be hardy here. Guess I’ll have to settle for a pastel painting of this stunning blue poppy. I used a reference image from the free reference image library on Wet Canvas. For some reason the picture is a little dark and flat looking, so some of the flowers and foliage don’t come across as well as they are in reality but the blue color is fairly accurate.
