True Blue Beauty at Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, PA


Rare blue-poppies on view now for a limited time

Only once a year can you experience the sky blue blooms of our highly anticipated Himalayan blue-poppies, Meconopsis ‘Lingholm’ … and that time is now! Our blue beauties are now in bloom and gracing our Conservatory with their remarkable beauty.

While this cultivar typically thrives in the northern regions of the US and Europe, each March our talented horticulturists force these rare beauties to flower ... and astound.

We expect the blooms to be on view for approximately 10 to 14 days. Join us for this once-in-a-blue-moon spectacle!

This is a Longwood Gardens announcement that was posted today. 


Plan your visit to Longwood Gardens.

Roy, Diane and I love Poppies, in Europe you mostly see the Red ones.... in California the Yellow is the most popular we have different colors as well, never seen a blue one yet:)Endre

A field of these blue poppies would really be something to see!  They have amazing colors.

What a gorgeous blossom that is.  I was sitting here imagining fabric that looked like that.  It would make a wonderful dress.
