(syn: Dysosma versipellis) Podophyllum versipelle is one of the most vigorous and easiest to grow of the wonderful Chinese mayapples. Podophyllum versipelle has only one (sometimes two) 18" wide, hexagonally-shaped, deeply-lobed, glossy green tropical-looking leaf perched atop a solitary 3' fleshy green stem. Unlike our native Podophyllum peltatum, Podophyllum versipelle is a clumping species that remains up until a hard frost. As Podophyllum versipelle matures, clusters of fascinating liver-red stringy-petaled flowers appear just under the leaf in spring, followed by bright red jujube-like fruit in fall...guaranteed to freak out your neighbors! Moist, humus-rich soil grows the largest plants.
