Mayapple, also called podophyllum peltatum, is a species in the barberry family. This perennial generally grows in colonies that originate from a single root. Typical areas where Mayapple plants grow wild are open forests, riverbanks, shady fields, and roadsides.
Native Americans use this plant for medicinal purposes, and podophyllotoxin is a common ingredient in prescription drugs. However, the plant in its natural form is highly toxic if swallowed by humans.
The stem sands in an upright position and grows from a shallow, branched underground rhizome. The rhizome has thick dark tubers connected by fleshy fibers, which spread roots allowing the bud to produce a shoot.
The leaves create an umbrella-like environment that makes a lush green landscape. The plant's stem elongates during the spring, and the leaves remain furled. Typically, up to two leaves grow on the stem. When Mayapple grows wild, it creates a beautiful dense colony.
It goes dormant as the environmental conditions get sunny.
The axil of the two leaves produces solitary white flowers. The flower measures 2" to 3" inches wide and features 6 to 9 waxy petals and a light green-colored sepal. The short-lived flowers are found hidden by the umbrella-like leaves. They produce a light, pleasant fragrance that attracts bumblebees.
Mayapple looks lush and plentiful in the garden and adds texture and greenery.
