Diphyllum, or Wood Poppy, is a native woodland plant that grows naturally on rich, moist forest floors. It provides bright, very showy flowers that bloom heavy in spring and then sporadically throughout the summer. The 12-18” stems contain a bright yellow sap which was used as a dye by Native Americans. Add it to an existing wooded area or create your own woodland garden. Dappled shade and humus-rich soil provide perfect growing conditions.

It is best grown in medium wet to wet, organic-rich soils in part to full shade. Plants will go dormant in early summer if soils dry out. It will naturalize easily by self-seeding in optimum growing conditions. To plant bare root perennials, dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2” below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.

Supplied as #1 sized bare root.
