T. latifolia, although choice for its yellow flowers and simple one-direction foliage, is mainly a species for people with alpine gardening experience (and altitudes for that matter). I have tried plants, both wild collected (with permission of course) and from seed, but the hot humid Tokyo summers always do them in. If you can grow Meconopsis, you can grow these.
