About Celandine Poppy
Yellow Wood Poppy is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial wildflower in the poppy family that is native to Eastern USA in moist open forests, along streams and ravines. In spring to early summer they produce bright yellow 4-petal flowers followed by a bristly blue-green pod that hangs below the leaves. The plants need moist humus-rich soils in partial to full shade.

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
