Podophyllum peltatum is a rhizotomous, spreading perennial with palmate, sometimes mottled, leaves which push up through the soil in late spring like a furled umbrella. Nodding cup-shaped white flowers develop in the leaf axils. These are very waxy and go on to produce small, fleshy, deep pink fruits in late summer and autumn. Best grown in a moist neutral to acid, peaty soil in shade. Slug and snail resistant and ultra hardy. We also sell Podophyllum hexandrum but you will find this listed under its new name: Sinopodophyllum hexandrum
