Plant Description

Celandine poppy is a handsome, cheerful perennial with bluish-green lobed leaves, the plants forming 1 1/2-foot clumps. From March to May, clusters of bright yellow, 2-inch buttercup-like flowers appear and are followed by nodding green hairy pods. Under dry conditions, this yellow poppy plant may go dormant in midsummer, otherwise it may flower on and off into fall. Celandine poppy is a favorite wildflower for a moist, rich, lightly wooded area. It will self-sow and multiply when happy. Grow it with other shade-tolerant species such as foamflower, columbine, bleeding heart, Virginia bluebells, wild ginger, and phlox. Celandine poppy is great for beginners.
