Podophyllum ‘Spotty Dotty’


This is one of the plants that always demands attention by visitors to the nursery.  A hybrid of several Asian Mayapples, Spotty Dotty features unusually large umbrella-shaped chartreuse leaves with dark spotting that emerge in the spring.  The beautiful leaf in the photo below is more than one foot wide.  Mature plants can reach about 18″ tall with garnet colored flowers found just under the leaves. 

These plants spread slowly to form a clump about 2 feet wide or more.  Best located in part shade in Zone 6 – 9.  

Other Podophyllums available at the Peacock Horticultural Nursery are Podopyllum veitchii, P. versipelle, P. peltatum, P. pleianthum, P. hexandrum.
