A malonylated anthocyanin and flavonols in the blue flowers of Meconopsis

A malonylated anthocyanin and flavonols in the blue flowers of Meconopsis

Phytochemistry (Oxford) 42(3): 863-865

The blue Himalayan poppies, Meconopsis horridula, M. grandis and M. betonicifolia, contain cyanidin 3-malonylsambubioside 7-glucoside as the anthocyanin. They also contain large amounts of kaempferol 3-gentiobioside and very small amounts of kaempferol 3-xylosylgentiobioside. The ratio of flavonol to anthocyanin was found to be 5.6:1, suggesting that the flavonol plays a role as a co-pigment in the blueing of Meconopsis flowers.
