Of eastern Chinese origin, Eomecon chionantha has sparkling white flowers with yellow stamens that bloom May to July. If given moist, humusy conditions, it will be 18" tall and wider than the three-foot clump it might otherwise be if its medium is less rich. It likes space but is not too rambunctiously naturalizing. The fleshy, rounded, and scalloped leaves on dark purple stems are 3-6" wide and as pretty as the flower.

The genus name comes from the Greek, eos (dawn) and mekon (poppy). The specific epithet comes from the Greek, chion (snow) and anthos (flower).

Minimum temperature: 0° F
