Item added to cart!

Mayapple is a native herbaceous perennial with a single stem featuring one or two deeply lobed pale green umbrella-like foliage that turns golden yellow in summer before going dormant.  Attractive white waxy flowers that are hidden under the foliage bloom in early spring.  Each flower gives way to fleshy edible fruits that turn golden when ripe and can be used to make preserves.  Flowers best in part shade and rich, moist soils. 

NOTE: the leaves, roots, and unripe fruit are highly toxic if ingested.
