Stylophorum diphyllum

Common name: Celadine Poppy

Native plant

The bright yellow blooms of Celandine Poppy are such a treat in spring, complimenting the purples and whites of other early bloomers well.  Its blooms occur mid to late spring and last at least 3 weeks.  Once seed pods ripen, they disperse an abundance of seeds, causing the formation of colonies.  Seeds are further distributed by ants that enjoy the elaiosomes on the seeds. If planted in shaded areas, foliage will stay green all summer long.  Exposure to too much sun during hot months can cause scorching of the leaves.
