Oh! Thank you Louisa. I couldn't find the label anywhere. It's taken a few years to establish in the garden but I love the colour. I found it in my plant list now you told me what it's called.

I have a photo of this on my photo page, but it has now trebled in size since the photo was taken last year, I will have to give it a haircut when it finishes flowering, as there is too much dark wood visible, Derek.

I don't know how you prune this Derek. I would be nervous tackling this as its only just looking comfortable in the garden.

Hi Sheila, pruning group 8 or 10, just a light trim for shape mainly, after flowering, don't be nervous about it, lol, you can also dead head to tidy it up a bit, Dererk.

Thanks Annella and Derek, I will give it a little trim when it stops flowering and see how it responds.

I do love blue flowers, i bought a blue poppy last year and it was gorgeous but it hasnt come up this year:-(

It's getting better now Sticki, it's struggled a bit for the first 2 years. That's why I was loathe to trim it.
I hope you see signs of your blue poppy coming back soon Sb.
