Hardy perennial herbaceous plant native to Europe and Asia, member of the Poppy family, Papaveracese. Plants have divided leaves and yellow blooms.

Cheliodoniums prefer a rich well drained soil in partial or dappled shade or on the edge of a woodland.

Plants can be propagated by digging and dividing or by sowing seed. Seeds should be sown in pots, trays or a bed prepared with a soiless medium (1 part sand to 1 part sphagnum peat moss is fine) and covered lightly. The medium should be kept moist, but not soggy at about 70F. WHen seedlings reach a height of 2 inches, they should be transplanted to larger containers or directly outdoors, if the outdoor temperatures remain above 55F.
