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.

    The yellow wood poppy is doing very well & I hope it continues to do so until it matures.

    Great Woodland flower

    Apr 13, 2021 Reviewer: Don

    Have ordered the poppies twice. They established quickly and are very easy to grow with zero maintenance. Look great and hang around pretty much until August in the South. Highly recommend for a wooded area with full shade.

    Celandine poppy review

    Jun 11, 2020 Reviewer: Donald hershman

    I ordered 10 bare root plants and 10 were delivered. Delivery was speedy. Packaging was average but effective. 2 of the 10 roots were pretty small compared to the others. Roots were potted up in containers and placed in optimal growing conditions. Nine plants have re-grown and the smallest did not survive (hence the 4-star rating). Overall I’m pleased, but I would like to say ten plants were thriving.

    I received the poppies very soon after I ordered them. They were packed well and shipped well. I received the three roots I ordered. They were in good shape. Thank you

    quantity ordered and planting instructions

    May 15, 2020 Reviewer: Clementine Watson

    These arrived ahead of schedule and most in good shape. The bare roots came in a variety of sizes. I ordered 20 and received 13. It would have been helpful to have received written instructions how to plant the roots or at least been provided on the website. I Googled how to plant them and am hoping for the best.
