Comprehensive Description

Read full entry


This attractive spring-blooming wildflower adapts well to gardens. It resembles another member of the Poppy family, Chelidonium majus (Celandine), but the latter has yellow flowers that are smaller (¾" across or less) and its seed capsules are hairless, linear and erect. Celandine is a somewhat weedy species that was introduced from Europe; it is a biennial that blooms during the summer. Other members of the Poppy family have flowers that are white, pink, orange, or purplish red. Another common name that is often applied to Stylophorum diphyllum is the Wood Poppy.
