A Rare Himalayan Blue Poppy

An Award Winning 24" x 14"" HD Matte Metal for $275.00 delivered right to your door!

Once considered a myth, blue-poppies (Meconopsis ‘Lingholm’) are alive and thriving at Longwood Gardens. These spectacular flowers—which are native to the high elevations of the Himalayan Mountains—reside in in their greenhouses where temperatures are kept cool to make the plants comfortable during their flowering season.

Then they force the blue-poppies to flower every year for a stunning display in March. This cultivar, 'Lingholm', produces large flowers that are four-inches in diameter on average.

The substantial petals are a mesmerizing deep sky blue color. 

When under stress, the plant may show a mauve tint, which this flower has a mauve petal.

Blue Poppies are infrequently cultivated outside their native habitat. Given the right conditions, however, they can thrive in gardens located in the northern regions of the U.S. and Europe.

I good fiend and I visited Longwood Gardens in late March, 2023 to specifically see and photograph these Blue Poppies - and everything else on display there, too.

In person, this display was just wonderful to see. 

This image is a Focus Stacked image. What does this mean? I made TEN F1.2 images (a very large but narrowly focused aperture), on a tripod, from the front to all of the petals. Photoshop easily merged them all into this amazing and detail rich image.

In person this HD Matte Metal looks like a fine art painting!

It is, as with all my images, available in various sizes as long as the Aspect Ratio stays the same (Width by Height) as there is no room to crop it.

14"T x 11"W costs $145.00 delivered!

30T x 24"W costs $465.00 delivered!

45"T x 36"W costs $1,045.00 delivered!

THIS size would be incredible in the right location - like in a lobby or conference room!
