Podophyllum peltatum, or Mayapple, is a wildflower native to moist, open woods throughout the Eastern United States. Each plant forms two large, palmate leaves in spring and follows with a single, white flower. After flowering, a single, lemon-shaped, yellow berry forms. Mayapple returns to dormancy in summer. Grow Mayapple under deciduous hardwoods or other shady areas in moist, humus-rich soils. Mayapple is excellent for nautralizing in woodland areas, as it spreads slowly through rhizomes.
