Podophyllum pleianthum


These incredible perennial plants feature giant glossy green leaves that reach up to 12" across. The unique foliage of pleianthum will bring eye-catching character to any garden. If you are looking for a conversation piece cultivar, this is it! Burgundy-maroon colored blossoms show themselves under the foliage canopy around May, depending on where planted. Pollenated blooms turn to apricot-shaped fruit later in the summer.

Podophyllum prefer well-draining soil, even moisture and somewhat shady growing environments. They are deer, slug and snail resistant, and can grow to about 3' tall x 3' wide. Hardy to -10°F when protected from windchill.

PLEASE NOTE: These are rare specialty plants that are sensitive. In the off season they will ship with little to no foliage. Once foliage appears, some dry spots can occur during shipping. This is normal and not an indication of plant health. The key to these plants is in the roots. We guarantee all of our plants arrive healthy, but we cannot guarantee pristine foliage out of the box for these plants. Once they are planted in their new home of moist, well-draining soil with shade they should thrive. Please let us know if you have questions. We are here to help!
