Product Description

Yellow Wood Poppy - Celandine Poppy

The Yellow Wood Poppy, Stylophorum diphyllum is a perennial plant native to woodland areas and thrives in moist, fertile soil. It is a striking plant with showy orange and yellow ruffled blooms. The poppy has leafy stalks, and the notched-shaped basal leaves of the plant also add to the overall beauty of this species. The blue-green leaves contrast nicely with the yellow flowers of the plant. The prime blooming season for the flowers is in spring (March – June) although intermittent blooming may continue through summer. The plant produces a yellow-orange sap which was utilized by Native Americans as a dye. The flowers are also an attraction for bees. It is quite beneficial to deadhead the flowers to encourage blooming.

Ideal for a shade garden, the Yellow Wood Poppy has a long life, grows in both shade and partial shade during the summer, but does prefer partial sun in the spring.

It is a self-sowing plant. The growing height for these unique plants reaches from 12 – 18 inches. Propagation is accomplished by dividing clumps or by collecting the seeds. The plant is attractive in a natural landscape selection, especially when combined with other woodland species such as phlox, Virginia bluebells, hostas, and ferns. The stunning yellow frilly flowers are useful in mass, or they can be contrasted with flowers in hues of pinks, blues, whites to add interest and brighten shady areas.

Woodland plants are an excellent choice when choosing to construct a garden to evoke a more natural and relaxed environment. Plants can be interspersed with stepping stones to make a pathway or can be designed into shady borders underneath trees. They do not require elaborate outlines but can be shaped in free form style as they would naturally form in nature. The poppy is a hardy wildflower and is resilient with no significant insects or disease issues. It is a beautiful addition to any woodland plant garden.

    Bulbs are planted, should come up next spring, half of them were on the small size. I hope that doesn’t matter.

    I planted three of these last year around this same time. I am always delighted when bare root plants not only grow, but thrive AND flower during their first year. Very pretty.

    I purchased bare root plants from 2 companies. Native wild flowers was much superior to the other company. My plants arrived promptly and in good condition. I would recommend, very good specimens!
