Notes: Excellent form with mottled foliage and good growth habit. It has been a while since this strain has been available. Plant with other Podophyllum for textural effect and contrast. If planted on a mound or slight incline the flower show off best. I have found for all Podophyllum that they grow best when planted in deep rich fertile soil with lots of organic material. I use a good layer of fertile mulch with dark bark chips along with manure and compost. P. difforme perform best when in dappled shade.
