More Information About Podophyllum

If you've only seen our native Podophyllum peltatum, you have missed some of the great joys of the genus podophyllum. In the great continental divorce about 250 million years ago, most of the really cool podophyllum species were on the wrong side of the great crack and got stuck in China.

When we started trying non-native mayapples, only Podophyllum emodi was available, which is the most difficult species to grow and certainly not a lover of hot climates. Despite being slow and difficult to propagate, many of the more growable podophyllum species as well as amazing new hybrids are finally becoming available.

In a slightly moist, organic soil, you'll find these new podophyllum selections to be amazing woodland garden specimens. They can be used in the garden as you would a very large hosta or a very short elephant ear. The exotic leaves of Podophyllum make it an excellent choice as a specimen plant or for a mass planting.
