SKU: c9db0340873d Category:

Low growing, colony forming perennial with deeply lobed bright green colored leaves on a short stem with multiple flowers sprouting from leaf axils. The flowers are about 1 inch across, bright yellow with four petals and a mass of curly stamens in the center like the European and Asian poppy varieties. Flowers are followed by a tubular seed capsule that splits open into four parts to release seeds when ripe. The plant secretes a yellow latex sap that will stain fabrics and was once used as a dye. A good plant for moisture retaining, low-lying, shady areas with rich soil.
