Outstanding when planted alone or with bluebells (M. virginica). Needs good, organic soil and shade to perform well.
Item #: STDIP
Binomial Stylophorum diphyllum

Celandine Poppy is a great plant for the shade garden. The foliage comes up early, forms a dense 12 to 16-inch cover, and remains until after fall frost if provided with enough moisture. It needs good rich soil with lots of organic matter to keep it looking good through summer. It re-seeds well. The 2-inch diameter flowers are a welcome sight in early spring and pair well with the ephemeral Virginia Bluebells.  Grows well in container gardens.  The root can be used to produce a yellow dye.

Uses:  Container gardens, natural dye, showy flowers, shade garden
