Himalayan Blue Poppy
Himalayan poppy also known as blue poppy (Meconopsis grandis) is a plant endemic to Central Asia. In fact, in Bhutan the blue poppy is the national plant of the country.
The blue poppy is not considered an herb as it does not have any confirmed healing or cosmetic properties. Many scientists do not classify it in the poppy family as they simply believe that it is only related to poppies, after all it does not produce opium like most species of poppies.
This rare species was discovered in 1922 by a British research mission in an attempt to conquer Mount Everest. Unfortunately, due to the difficulty of growing the blue poppy in Europe, it is not very widespread despite its impressive appearance.
