One of the showiest woodland flowers you can grow, this handsome perennial has attractive, bluish-green, deeply-lobed leaves. From March until May, clusters of large, bright yellow, saucer-like flowers appear, which are followed by pointed, erect, green hairy pods. In dry conditions, the plant may go dormant in midsummer, otherwise it flowers on and off into autumn. This is probably the best of the "Wood Poppies" for a moist, rich, lightly wooded area, where if happy it will self-sow and multiply.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
