Stylophorum diphyllum (celandine-poppy, wood poppy, poppywort) is a herbaceous perennial native to moist woodland in eastern North America, valued for its yellow flowers. In spring, the deep yellow flowers of the Wood Poppy appear as a brilliant display on the forest floor. Members of the Poppy Family are characterized by their production of latex, which in the case of the Wood Poppy is yellow.
