oh sorry. I see the label.. i thought it looked like a poppy. and i see its a himalayan blue poppy. never saw it before, although Im from India. :)

They are very rare in the US, Mystic. It's very difficult to get them bloom as they like high mountain terrain. I noticed another bud on the flower and I'm going back to take a photo of that too.

I do love this flower, but mine has got 5 petals ;-), not exactly like the real one...
