The Welsh Poppy, Meconopsis cambrica.
The Welsh Poppy, Meconopsis cambrica, is a local plant of south west England,
and in particular of north Devon, Wales and parts of Ireland. The Welsh Poppy
frequently appears as a garden escape often becoming naturalised, especially in
Scotland. It's primarily a plant of damp, hilly or rocky habitats often found close
to some shade. The plant will flower from midsummer to September. It has an
extremely restricted ĎAtlanticí distribution in Europe, occurring elsewhere only,
in northern Spain, Portugal and western France.
