Comments: This is a native wildflower of Missouri that self-seeds and naturalized if conditions are favorable. Poppy-like, yellow flowers are produced in spring and early summer. It does best in shaded gardens where soils stay quite moist for most of the time. It cannot tolerate dry conditions as plants will become dormant during periods of drought. No major plant pest reported.
