This lovely wood poppy comes from North America and is now endangered in its local habitat. It is a very hardy tuberous perennial with cup-shaped, poppy-like yellow flowers, on upright stems in late spring and summer. The leaves are hairy and oak-shaped and the flowers are quickly followed by magnificent hairy seed heads. It will flower again in September and deserves to be more widely known. Best grown in a moist soil and a great plant for pollinators.
Care & Maintenance.
Cut back after the first flowering unless you want to collect seed. Seed is best sown fresh. The plant can also be propagated by careful division in spring.
