Wood Poppy (Stylophorum diphyllum) aka Celandine Poppy-
This 12-20 in. native poppy has blue-green, pinnately lobed and toothed leaves that are silvery below. It is known for its large, 4-petaled poppy-like, yellow to orange flowers. The stalks are leafy and the flowers are produced in small clusters, atop a stem bearing a pair of deeply lobed leaves; other leaves basal. This is a beautiful, long-blooming plant for a shady garden space. Plant has yellow sap that was used for dye by Indigenous peoples.

This is a fine species to grow in Eastern wildflower gardens, far less aggressive than the introduced European species. The species name, Greek for "two-leaved," refers to the pair of opposite leaves below the flower. Occurs in nature from western Pennsylvania north to Wisconsin and Michigan, south to Arkansas, Tennessee, and southwestern Virginia, with isolated populations in northern Alabama and southern Ontario. Because its range is so limited in that province, it is listed as a Species Endangered by Canada's SARA (Species at Risk Act) and by COSEWIC (Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada).
