Podophyllum hexandrum


Availability : Available

Description :

Himalayan Mayapple

Podophyllum hexandrum is native to the upland forests of the Himalayas (South-west China, Bhutan, and Afghanistan) and is a slow-growing rhizomatous perennial. In early spring it deploys its deeply-divided, three-lobed, parasol leaves and solitary cup-shaped pink or white flowers.

After flowering it sets an inedible red fruit similar to an apple.

This botanical rarity is an interesting ornament for understory planting in moist, humus-rich and well-drained soil.

For a shady rockery, understory or alpine greenhouse.

Podophyllum hexandrum is very hardy, but does not like overly warm or dry conditions in the summer or damp soil in the winter. Improve drainage by adding 5 mm pozzolan mixed with mature compost or a good horticultural medium.

Synonym: Sinopodophyllum hexandrum, Podophyllum emodi, P. sikkimensis

Limited stock. For passionate, discerning gardeners!
