Dicranostigma, or Eastern Horned Poppies, are hardy herbaceous perennials belonging to the Poppy family, Papaveraceae and native to the Himalayas and China. The plants are suitable for rock gardens or semi shady areas with moist soil.

Propagation is done by digging and separating existing plants or by sowing seeds. Seeds should be sown in pots, trays or a bed prepared with a soiless seed starting medium (1 part sphagnum peat moss to 1 part sand is fine). Sow the seed and cover lightly. Maintain temperature at about 70F and keep the medium moist, but not soggy. When seedlings reach 2 inches in height, transplant to larger containers or, if outdoor temperatures remain above 55F, you may set the transplants in an outdoor prepared area
