A Pictorial Guide to the Big Blue Poppies by Evelyn Stevens, co-founder in 1998 of The Meconopsis Group, (price Ј15 plus post and packing), has just been published, Oct 2015. This well-researched book with 398 carefully chosen colour photographs will appropriately complement the more extensive book for Meconopsis enthusiasts referred to below.

Meconopsis has been a popular genus with gardeners for more than a century, ever since its introduction into western gardens from the Far East. But in recent years, problems of identification and naming have arisen due to hybridisation amongst the various species growing close together in gardens. The Meconopsis Group was founded in 1998 to try to resolve the confusion. This particularly applied to the popularly styled "Himalayan blue poppies". So the initial remit was to clarify the identities and nomenclature of the many forms of big perennial blue poppies found in cultivation.

In addition to this initial taxonomic work, The Meconopsis Group is interested in promoting and working on all other matters relating to the genus. Important topics include how to grow and propagate Meconopsis. species and hybrids in cultivation and the study of the species in the wild, including their taxonomy, distribution and ecology. These studies, of course, have important conservation implications.
