Planting and care

Since celandine poppy wildflowers are naturally found in woodland environments, you may be wondering, can you grow celandine poppies in the home garden. The answer is yes.

These woodland beauties respond well to cultivation as long as the soil is high in organic material and the plants have plenty of shade.

Many gardeners use celandine plants as a colorful shady woodland border, as it is one of the easiest spring woodland plants to grow. The best way to grow celandine poppies is by seed. Fresh seeds are quick to germinate under the right conditions.

Provide plenty of rich compost in the planting area and scatter seeds liberally over the soil. Cover the plants lightly and keep the soil evenly moist. Thin seedlings when they are 4 inches tall. Plant spacing should be about 12 inches.

Sunlight: Part shade to full shade
Soil: humusy soils
Water: Medium to wet
Temperature: temperatures up over 90 F
Fertilizer: apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Chelidonium majus

  • Celandine plants will go dormant if the soil becomes too dry.
  • As long as the soil is kept evenly moist, the woodland poppy will naturalize and bring a burst of color year after year.
  • So be sure to water regularly during dry spells and cover with a light layer of mulch for winter protection.
