Podophyllum pleiantha x versipelle (Chinese Mayapple)

Family:  Berberidaceae
Zone: 6 - 9
Natural Range: Hybrid
Soil:  Moist, humus rich
Light:  Part shade, shade
Height:  24" -  36"
Attributes:  Clumping.  Deciduous but tends to keep growing if consistently above freezing.  Deep green leaves looking like an intermediate between the two parents.  Very vigorous, offsetting quite rapidly.  Red flowers

Notes:  Another hand pollinated KIGN cross.  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.
