Description from Prairie Nursery

Podophyllum peltatum

Mayapple (Podophyllum peltatum) is often referred to as “Umbrella Plant” because of its large, widely-spreading leaves. Creeps slowly by rhizomes to form a miniature “forest” when planted two feet on center, and is known to do well under some pines. The umbrella-like leaves protect beautiful and fragrant white flowers that attracts a wide variety of pollinators in April and May. Grows in any well-drained soil in shade, and in full sun in rich, heavy soil.
