at Digging Dog
Brimming with charm, this showy undemanding wildflower is a sterling choice for naturalizing in a moist, lightly shaded locale. Paired and gray below, the blue-green Oak-like leaves and silver-haired, green nodding buds foster a wealth of 2 in. wide, golden yellow poppy-styled blossoms atop 12 to 18 in. stems.
Native to the eastern United States, the esteemed Celadine Poppy forms a long-lived, versatile leafy colony that may go summer dormant under dry conditions. It easily adapts to the shadows of a woodland or a more formal garden border, mingling amidst Asarum, finely cut Dicentra and Tiarella, while curious saffron-colored sap and fuzzy, 4-parted seed pods add intrigue.
Blooms March – April.
Size: 8"–10" high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 4.
Stylophorum diphyllum (P-0882)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
