Podophyllum pleianthum Album
Product Details
A fantastic variation of a plant from China with attractive leaves and flowers. Interest begins in spring when the leaves push through the soil, folded up like an umbrella they slowly expand and enlarge to their full size. Maturity will not be acheived until several years in the ground or container when the leaves approach 60 cms wide. The petiole joins the leaf in the centre of the lower surface and the blade is almost symmetrical. Up to 3 leaves are produced per stem and the joint of these is where the flowers are held. These are deepest mahogany-red in the species but this variety has creamy white flowers and the petals appear crumpled at first before they enlarge. Each hangs pendulosly.
