Himalayan Plants - Meconopsis simplicifolia
This print is one of a series of illustrations made for J. F. Cathcart of the Bengal Civil Service in 1855. The plates were executed by W. H. Fitch and analysed by the famous botanist J. D. Hooker. The following is an excerpt from Hooker's description.
“The present is the most beautiful and conspicuous of all the alpine flowers of Sikkim, if not of the whole Himalaya, and is very common in rocky and gravelly places, at 12,000 feet elevation and upwards, where it expands its delicate blossoms in May, exposed to the violent winds and snow-storms of those inhospitable regions. It was originally discovered by Dr. Wallich's collectors in Central Nipal, but has not been found further west in the Himalaya.”
