Also called “Wood Poppy,” this spring flower is common in high-quality natural areas along creeks and ravines. In spring to early summer they produce bright yellow 4-petal flowers that are followed by a bristly blue-green pod that hangs below the leaves. Although typically yellow, the flowers can contain a hint of orange.  Deadhead after blooming to stimulate additional blooms.

This plant works well in shade gardens.
