Podophyllum pleianthum (Chinese Mayapple) slide #21011

Podophyllum pleianthum (Chinese Mayapple)

Light Shade to ShadeZone: 5b-8, at least 24" tall Origin: China

Open House/Web-Only! (syn: Dysosma pleiantha) Stunning is the only word to describe a mature specimen of the giant Chinese mayapple. Picture our native mayapple Podophyllum peltatum on 2' tall glaucous stems, lessen the indentation of each 13" wide leaf... oh yes, make the plant a clumper, not a runner. This deer-resistant tropical looking plant also doesn't go dormant until fall unlike our native species. In early May, the red bell-shaped flowers are held on very hairy pedicels (flower stalks) between the two lobed leaves (hexagonal when young). Podophyllum pleianthum prefers moist organic soils and good shade for best performance. In severe heat, it may experience a short summer dormant period. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml)
