    Does any one grow celandine poppies? This is the cultivated one.. Stylophorum diphyllum, not the wild/weed.

    I have one that I have allowed to go to seed & I am having trouble detecting the possible seedlings.

    Here is a photo:

    I took this photo in the late afternoon so unfortunately the flowers are closed.

    Here is a photo of the possible seedlings (mixed in with weeds)

    Worse case, I'll just wait & see what develops.

    I see them! I see them. Wood poppies!! In with some weeds. :) I will have to make a picture with arrows and send it back to you.

    My last one went extinct after 30 years of them populating part of the back yard woods. Other plants over ran them and the a couple of years ago, no more. :( I went to Garden in the Woods last week where I originally bought them but they were all out. And to think I had hundreds of seeds and never saved any since they were so plentiful.

    Jerry you are welcome to some of these babies if you'd like, assuming there is more than 1! This plant also came from Garden in the Woods. Great place. My kids & I went there for mother's day this year. Great place.

    It just occurred to me, would seeds be easier? The plant has seed pods developing.

    The leaves with the three lobes (bit like some kinds of Acers) are the Stylophorum seedlings.

    Wow, Jerry great posting. I had obviously read it back in 2013 but had forgotten it. Your description of the wooded area behind the homes in your neighborhood closely matches our area. I have seen gradual changes over time as more trees get cut down.

    We used to have a pair of owls nesting in the vicinity until one neighbor cut down all their trees. On the flip side, we are seeing more deer (local Orchardists have fenced them out, so they are coming into the neighborhoods more?), more coyotes & more bear.

    I'll research when celandine poppy seeds typically come ripe (unless you know?) and mail you some.

    @Jerry Sullivan Celandine poppy seeds are ready! IMG_20180616_193939.jpg

    I am having a little trouble catching the pods at the right moment. You can see the former pods in the upper right of the photo. The 2 pods on the left I caught just at the right time. The pods at the bottom.... ? ? ? ....
    Hopefully they are not too green.

    the pods that have split reveal ripened seeds. The other seeds will probably ripen with some time in the sun.
