Stylophorum lasiocarpum

This arrived quite by chance as a seedling in a pot of something else and it took me a long time to identify it. Wonderful large pale yellow flowers. It has now produced some seed and I am scattering it around hoping that it will find a suitable location and grow.

A rhizomatous perennial from eastern China, it has been short lived here but fortunately seedlings continue to come up unexpectedly. It will possibly become a nuisance if it takes to life under the trees but it can't be more invasive than Meconopsis cambrica and I am still pleased to have that.
