Podophyllum difforme 'Starfish Strain'  (Chinese Mayapple)

Family:  Berberidaceae
Zone: 6 - 9
Natural Range: China
Soil:  Moist, humus rich
Light:  Part shade, shade
Height:  12” - 18"
Attributes:  Deciduous, evergreen above 20s F.  Blood red blooms in spring.  Dark brown and white mottled foliage.
Bloom Time:  April to June
Pest Resistance:  Deer, Rabbit
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.
