Dicranostigma franchetianum 'Aristocrat'
Clear yellow poppy flowers. Started flowering as seedlings under lights. Not sure of its life cycle, but I'll assume it's an annual.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|Bertie Fox||Apr 08, 2009||Sowed on surface of vermiculite in a petri dish. Took at least 21 days to begin germination, over gentle heat. (I was beginning to give up on it). Pricked on as tiny seedling into ordinary compost at room temperature. |
|wylie||Dec 12, 2009||Mine has lasted 3 years. It does need a little pruning of the dead parts. And it doesn't like being crowded.|
|Ian Fraser||Dec 27, 2011||Growing for the first time in Brazil, so more worried about heat resistance than cold, however it is from Western China so should be resistant to extreme temps at both ends.|
|Ian Fraser||Dec 27, 2011||Seed sown direct 70-85F (20-30C), dryish conds. Germination fast (3 days) but erratic (40%), probably too warm.|
Thanks for sharing your observations, Ian.
- Seed from JLH '03 (via '04 trade). Baggy 70F (50%G, 10-19d)
