(syn: Dysosma difformis) The Chinese mayapples are amazing, and Podophyllum difforme is one of the stars. This stunning mayapple is composed of the typical 1 stem, 1 leaf trait that defines most of the genus, but each leaf is quite unique in its unusual quadrangular shape and also in the dramatic, purple patterning on the top side. In late spring, the clusters of red-purple flowers hang just beneath the foliage. A light-shade, woodland site with rich, slightly moist soil is best. Unlike our native Podophyllum peltatum, Podophyllum difforme does not run or go dormant until fall.
