(Greater Celandine, Celandine Poppy) Short-lived herbaceous perennial native to Europe and temperate Asia.  Very comely, with slightly downy stems and leaves that look inviting to eat (but don’t eat them) studded with bright yellow flowers.  Traditional usage (TWM): warts, cancer, alterative.  Low dose botanical.  Plant prefers shade to part sun and very fast-draining soil.  It volunteers heavily and roots very securely into the cinders that make up the pathways in our shadehouses.  The seeds germinate best when planted in the shade (dark dependent germinators). Plant grows and prospers in the cooler parts of the year. Cover seed lightly and keep evenly moist until germination. Sow in the fall or early spring. Space plants 18 inches apart.  Flowers to 2 feet.
