  1. The blue Meconopsis are lovely, but are heat sensitive, being primarily high mountain plants of western China and the Himalaya. To grow, plants need to make more enegy by photosynthesis than they lose through respiration. One theory for what causes some plants to be heat sensitive is that during our warm summmer nights, plants of high elevations and latitudes will lose more enegy respiring (plants respire at night) than they gain during the preceding day of photosynthesis. If someone could figure out a way to keep plants cool at night, we might be able to manage. I have seen some of the robust and tolerant Meconopsis hybrids grown, with special care, as far south as Ottawa, Canada.
