The Mayapples/Podophyllum peltatum are just starting to bloom here in North Carolina.
These lovely plants make bright green colonies in rich-soiled, hardwood forests.
Mayapple plants have one stem, two leaves and a flower in the crotch where the stem bifurcates.
The solitary flower is hidden under the umbrella-like leaves.
The petals are waxy white and the stamens are a lovely butter yellow.
Wild flowers are wonderful.
Go find some!
