mayapple, Podophyllum peltatum

Mayapples! Coming to you now! But you can't see them in your local cinema. Almost any wood lot will do. So get out there! And get down on the ground where you can get a good look at these two inch blooms, hanging under their umbrella of leaves. Boy have they needed that umbrella around here lately! Mayapples grow in AL, AR, CT, DE, FL(E), GA, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MS, NC, NH, NJ, NY, OH, OK, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, VA, VT, WI, WV, NS, ON, and QC(T).
