    Nope, I can’t see anything.

    Maybe write to RHS Wisley and ask them, since it’s named after them they might know.
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    these are cultivars of Papaver orientale and can only be reproduced by splitting a plant or by root cuttings. Seedlings will not come true and you won't find them stocked by seed merchants because of that.

    @lornagoon54 According to the RHS, it was last listed in their Plant Finder in 2014. You could put a request on the Seed and cuttings swop thread to see if anyone has one and is willing to send some root cuttings for you.
