May Apple is native to North American deciduous forests. It grows under the forest canopy, flowers, and withers in late summer.

The Looks And Size Of The May Apple

Hardier than some other ephemerals, the flower grows to 30–40 cm tall with thick stems that produce two to three palmately lobed foliage leaves of up to 30 cm diameter. Of those, five to nine of the cut lobes reproduce. The 3-5 cm diameter flower blooms pale yellow. As it matures, it turns into a fruit.

May Apple Has Many Names 

May Apple is also Called the Indian Apple, Hog Apple, Mayflower, Umbrella Plant, Wild Lemon, or Wild Mandrake. It is found throughout the eastern woodlands of Canada and the United States and is typically entangled in the rhizome systems of many wildflowers.

How The May Apple Reproduces 

The green environment makes the plant fecund for reproduction. The seeds, which appear like circular clones, reproduce annually through far-distance dispersal. The protection of the forest ensures replication. It is such a great addition to any home!
