Yellow Wood Poppy is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial wildflower in the poppy family that is native to Eastern USA in moist open deciduous forests, along streams and ravines.

In spring to early summer they produce bright yellow 4-petal flowers that are followed by a bristly blue-green pod that hangs below the leaves. Although typically yellow, the flowers can contain a hint of orange.  Deadhead after blooming to stimulate additional blooms.

Although a self-seeder, it is not an aggressive plant and additional plants can be easily removed by pulling them up.

The plants need moist humus-rich soils in partial to full shade.  When mature, they are somewhat drought tolerant, however, they will go dormant in summer if allowed to dry out. Use this plant in woodland settings, shady native plant or naturalized areas or along streams and ponds.

Its survival in the wild is said to be threatened in some locations by garlic mustard, an invasive plant that can destroy the habitat of this plant.
