The Stunning Mayapple

The Mayapple will be a delightful addition to your Spring garden. It is very easy to plant, and it will grow happily and with very minimal maintenance. Gardeners and landscapers enjoy the distinctive beauty of the plant. The leaves of the plant are large, and striking in color and colossal mass. This perennial plant will look beautiful for months to come.

The Growth Of Mayapple

It will grow to a height of about 12 inches to a max of 18 inches. The leaves will actually grow to more than 12 inches in witdh. The plant is known as a species of podophyllum peltatum. It sometimes goes by the name of duck's foot. It is a member of the Japanese barberry family. A part of the plant, grown on the leaf as a small fruit, is considered edible by some researchers. If eaten, it should be only when the apple is fully ripe. The colors of the leaf will vary throughout the season. It will start off as a variation of olive green. Throughout the shades of olive green, there will also be a copper hue that will be evident in the early growing stages of the Spring. For most of the zones, this would be in the month of May and a bit sooner in zone 5. Later in the season, expect a change of color to solid green. It is not unusual to get variations of colors from leaf to leaf.

Where To Plant Mayapple

Mayapple plants are found in the northeastern areas of North America. They typically are known to prosper best in zones 3 to 8. It is recommended to plant it in a sunny area in a moist soil and compost. In a more shady area, a plant will do best with abundant water. The plant will blossom in the early summer, and possibly even as early as May in some climates.

I have order Mayapples from other companies before and yours are the best! Quick shipping, great price, good sturdy packaging and the roots were clearly alive, though dormant.
