I need help to identify that plant. I am just curious what came up from the ground in my back yard. Big, up to 5 inch heart shaped leaves, small yellow flowers, look like Caltha palustris, just the flowers!!! Fruit in a shape of a poppy capsule with big crown. Each seed in a separate compartment, counted 12 seeds, capsule about one inch in diameter. See pictures.
Thank you,
