March 27, 2012 -- wood poppy

I don't know how long this wood poppy is going to hold up in a vase, but it just had to be my subject for today. I've grown wood poppies (Stylophorum diphyllum) for a long time (ever since Virginia Miller gave me one), but I've never has as many as I have this year. The reason I have so many this year is that another friend, Trish Wrenn, gave me a dozen or more plants last fall. I was hoping they'd do exactly what they have done, which is form a mass of what looks like enormous buttercups. (There's also one stem of Epimedium leaves in the bottle with the wood poppy.)
