Stylophorum diphyllum

celandine poppy

Celandine poppy starts blooming along with some of the more ephemeral spring-blooming understory plants, but keeps right on going after the others have entered dormancy. Its seeds have a protein-rich cap that entices ants to disperse them, and it provides much-needed nectar and pollen in the early season.
