Stylophorum lasiocarpum

Stylophorum lasiocarpum
Chinese celandine poppy
Developing seedpods
Common name Chinese celandine poppy
Family papaveraceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers yellow (spring-summer)
Size 12-18"
Light shade
Cultural notes drought-tolerant

Reportedly tolerates dry shade. We're putting it to the test, in a strip alongside our neighbors' arborvitae hedge, which casts shade a good part of the day, and sucks the adjacent soil pretty dry. So far so good - it bloomed the next year, and seemed to take its position in stride.
Post-scriptum: it did not return the following year.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
